James Frederick Dickerson
DICKERSON- At the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen, NB., November 19, 2016, James Frederick Dickerson Sr. Husband of the late Marion (Little) Dickerson.
Born in Moores Mills, NB, April 20, 1926, son of the late William and Hazel Dickerson.
Jim was a carpenter by trade and worked out west many years. When he returned home he started a mill, which was eventually sold and became known as the Great Northern Fence Company. He worked there until he retired. Jim was a quiet, gentle man, who enjoyed a long, happy life with his wife and family. He went camping in the summer with his wife and sons, Jim Jr. and Danny, when the boys were young. In the winter, they spent time at his camp in Andersonville. They went snowmobiling and relaxed. Jim loved and respected his wife and family. They had many gatherings, including the yearly family barbecue, Thanksgiving, Christmas, weddings and many birthday celebrations. The past few years, he went to the Farmers market on Friday, sitting with his nephew Bobby, enjoying his day. In earlier years, he went to Dinsmore's Hardware on Friday evenings, where he met with his friends and discussed the weeks events. Sunday was the day he visited his sister, Melva. When he arrived home, some of us often stopped for a visit and coffee. He also loved going to the lumber jack competition and the horse pulls during festival week. Jim was loved by his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Each one of us has our own special memories. Dad has left a wonderful legacy for us. He will be missed.
Survived by his children; James Dickerson Jr., Karen (Lloyd) Linton, Diane (Bill) Johnson, John (Marilyn) Little, Wayne (Mina) Little, Danny (Shelley) Little, grandchildren; Chad Linton, Ronnie Cleghorn, Tabitha Godin, William Johnson Jr., Amanda Packard, Tracy Little, Bobby Little, Craig Little, Josh Little, great grandchildren, Noah and Isabelle Linton, Chase and Quinn Cleghorn, sisters, Edna Woodside and Melva Merrill, many nieces and nephews.
