Jim Atkinson


James "Jim" Atkinson, 66, of Lutes Mountain, passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital on Wednesday, May 3, 2023. Born in Amherst, NS, he was the son of the late Harold and Joan (nee Alexander) Atkinson.

Jim retired from Suncor Energy,  having worked for many years in Ft. McMurray, AB. He was very involved in bettering the community around him through involvement with the Shriners and Masons. He loved to help people and enjoyed seeing how those efforts improved the lives of those around him. He had a love for motorcycles and riding, and rebuilding cars and trucks bringing them back to their original state of excellence.

He will be sadly missed by his wife, Oreila Atkinson (nee Payne); brother, Peter Atkinson (Wanda); sister, Ruth Parks (Neil); and between the Payne and Atkinson families, he had a lot of surviving nieces, nephews, and cousins.
