Obituary of James Alexander Doull

It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of James Alexander Doull, at the Windsor Court Retirement Residence on Friday, June 12, 2020.  Jim was born in Moncton, NB on October 17, 1935.  He was the son of the late Carl and Marjorie (Black) Doull.  

Jim was a competitive swimmer, lifeguard, scuba diving instructor and had a passion for sailing and saltwater.  His love for the ocean took him to Grand Manan Island for his retirement years. He loved many sports and spent hours in hockey rinks and gymnasiums cheering on his children and grandchildren.  Jim was a friend to everyone and those who knew him would describe him as a kind and compassionate man who loved to talk, and always had a story or a joke to tell. He was a talented musician with a passion for playing the drums.  He made many special friendships within the music community and took great pleasure in hosting countless jam parties. 

His professional life began with the City of Moncton Engineering Department.  As a Forest Engineer Jim worked with the Province of New Brunswick, JD Irving Limited and retired as a Fire Consultant with his company, Atlantic Fire Tech Inc. He was known by one and all for his loyalty, high standards, exceptional work ethic and for his love for Forest Fire Management.

In addition to his loving wife Sally of 63 years, Jim is survived by his sister Carolyn Doull of Montreal, brother Carl Firth (Debbie) of Shediac, brother in law Fred Atkinson (Deana) of Bouctouche, his children Peter Doull of Grand Manan, Susan Dobbelsteyn (Danny) of Fredericton, Janet Johnson (John) of Fredericton, grandchildren Cody Dobbelsteyn, Brandon Dobbelsteyn (Bridget), Heidi Doull (Greg), Jody Doull (Brent) James Doull (Chloe), Jessica Johnson (Gordon), Katelyn Johnson, David Johnson; 10 great grandchildren and several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews.  Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Doug.

The family would like to express its sincere and heartfelt thanks to all the Windsor Court team and friends for the excellent care and compassion provided to Jim.
