It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father, James Andrew McGoogan of Stayner, peacefully on January 27th in his home. Jimmy was born in Scotland on May 16th and came to call Toronto home in 1956 with the love of his life, Ruby (predeceased 2010). Jimmy is survived by his loving daughters, Andrea (Gino) and Lisa (Chuck). Cherished grandad to Chrystal (Donald), Brad, Ryan (Sabrina), Sarah, Matthew and Daniel. Great-grandad to Paetyn, Brandon and Rylin. Caring brother to Jean of England and Jessie of Scotland. Jimmy was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and friend. Jimmy enjoyed a long and successful career in the chemical coatings industry. He loved to Scottish country dance and was a competitor in his favourite sports of lawn and carpet bowling, curling and pool. Jimmy enjoyed spending time with his family and was an avid reader and baker. In keeping with Jimmy’s wishes there will be no service or visitation. A private family service will be held. A celebration of Jimmy’s life will follow on Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 1-4pm in the hall at Huron Meadows Complex, 275 Huron Street, Stayner. Arrangements entrusted to Carruthers & Davidson Funeral Home – Stayner Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Foundation in memory of Jimmy. Lisa and Andrea would like to extend a special thanks to the palliative care team, specifically nurse practitioner Shelley Kennedy-Johnston, Dr. Kate McLachlin and nurses Natalie, Lisa, Richard and Emma from St. Elizabeth’s for their exceptional care and compassion with their father during his brief illness.

Lisa, Andrea and Families we are so sad to hear of Jimmy's passing. We have the greatest respect for the kind man Jimmy was. Ruby and Jimmy were such wonderful friends to Larry & Shirley and to us. They both helped Shirley thru many tough days and never gave up helping her. Jimmy and Ruby were so kind to come sit with Shirley in her last days at our house, we will never forget them, and their kindness. We loved visiting with them and sharing many good laughs while testing out Jimmy's latest recipe. His baking was awesome. We take solace in knowing he is back with the love of his life Ruby. Our thoughts are with all of you.
