Peacefully at home on Friday, May 3, 2019 James (Jim) McCarthy passed at the age of 81. Beloved husband of Marjorie (Donaldson) McCarthy. Dear Dad of Teresa (Neil), and Monica (Alain), and proud Grandpa of Evan, Adam; Isaac, and Jonah. Jim was predeceased by his parents Lawrence and Mary McCarthy and his in-laws Ethel and Jim Donaldson, and Harold Mawson. Many thanks to Dr. Leger, Nurse Paula, and the VON for all the kindness and care given to Jim. Jim was a life-long resident and farmer in Lucan Biddulph Township. He was a joker, a talker, a lover of the ‘ponies’, and of the London Knights. To anyone he knew, Jim was a kind and generous soul. He was loved by his many family members, friends, and neighbours.
