J. Duncan Jardine

   1941 – 2020

James Duncan Jardine of Miramichi passed away at his residence on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at the age of 78.

Born in Kouchibouguac, NB on August 25, 1941, he was the son of the late William and Luella (MacNaughton) Jardine.  He was a Gas Fitter, Commercial Kitchen Installation and Mechanical Contractor. Mostly he built commercial kitchens but he was really a genius at fixing anything mechanical, especially cars.  He was Director of Coaching of Young Canadians Hockey Club in Toronto for many years in the 90s and Coach for the Duffield Boys Club in the 80s.  He was hugely interested in car racing and we are sure he was friend to several teams, like Brian McNaughton Racing for one.

Duncan is survived by daughter, Jane Jardine; son, Scott Jardine; brother, Eldon Jardine; mother of his children, Anne Jardine.  He was predeceased by his parents.

There was no visitation held at the funeral home.  A graveside service will be held at Pine Grove Cemetery at a later date.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated by the family.  Arrangements are entrusted to Adams Funeral Home Ltd., 140 King St., Miramichi, telephone (506) 773-3492 or messages of condolence may be sent online to
