James Patrick Brennan Sr. passed away peacefully at the Sunnybrook Veterans Centre in Toronto on Saturday January 13, 2024 in his 94th year.

Born in Halifax, Jim was a member of the Royal Canadian Navy 1948-1953 and Naval Reserve 1953-1955. He later moved to Cornwall, Montreal, Sarnia and Toronto. He spent many years working in the petrochemical industry for Dupont in Sarnia. In his retirement years he enjoyed woodworking, gardening, reading and could often be found helping others with genealogical research.

He was preceded in death by his wife Eleanor, his parents John and Catherine, and his siblings John, Jean, Joan, George, Paul and Robert.

He is survived by his children, James (Rosa) of Kirkland Quebec, William (Kimberly) of Scarborough Ontario, Maureen (Larry) of Sarnia Ontario, 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He will be deeply missed.

At Jim’s request there will be no visitation or service. He has asked that he be cremated, and that his ashes and those of his late wife be returned to his beloved Nova Scotia and scattered in the countryside. A donation in his memory to the Canadian diabetes foundation is appreciated.
