To know him was to love him.

It is with profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved and adored husband, father, grandfather and soon to be great grandfather, James McArthur at age 94. Jim was a true hero to so many. Not only was he of dedicated service to his family and many friends and community, he served valiantly in WWll which ultimately lead him to becoming a feisty and brave prisoner of war. His final escape lead to his survival and a life of supreme peace and happiness with the love of his life and forever dance partner, Margaret Baird (January 24th, 2008) with whom he shared 64 years of wedded bliss. Together they shared their highly devoted & beloved and so ever proud 3 children Heather (Francois) Gratton, Edward (Michelle) and Margaret (Michael) Therrien. Sharing in the celebration of his life with special memories are his beloved and adored grandchildren Jenna Leigh (J.P. Martins), Philippe Gratton (Brittany Beausoleil), Gregory, Sean and Christian McArthur, Mackenzie, Michaela and Maggie Therrien and soon to be great-grandfather to baby Everly Gratton. Jim was fortunate to live his younger years with his sister’s Elizabeth (George Rennie) & Jessie (Earl Pratt). They were all children of the beloved Angus & Elizabeth McArthur. In marrying Margaret, Jim became brother-in-law to Shirley & Robert Baird, Kay and Bob Giles, Pat & the late Leo Boutet.

Jim was a dedicated member of the Moramos Shrine Club, Scottish Society of Windsor, Sandwich West Council & Essex County Board of Education and devoted member of Paulin Memorial Presbyterian Church. It also meant a great deal to his grandchildren to speak at their schools to educate young students in regard to his country’s history. His years of government service ended with his highly respected position as Field Officer with Canada Pension Plan then continued to counsel the many who sought his advice in this regard. His family gives special thanks to his many caregivers while living at the Royal Marquis & those who cared for his wife while at Richmond Terrace, especially his loving friends, Barb Clunis and her daughter Shelley Wiley. Thank you to all the devoted team members at Malden Park Palliative Care for their care and compassion. Jim was an amazing human being & source of inspiration to all who were fortunate enough to share in his life.
