OBITUARY The Very Reverend JOHN PAUL JAMES Paul James, of Huron Street Stratford, passed away peacefully at the Stratford General Hospital on Saturday June 23, 2007, just a month before his 77th birthday. Born in London, England, son of the late Gordon Stannus and Frances James, he was an Anglican priest and Dean Emeritus of the Diocese of Quebec. After working as an electrical engineer, he answered the call on his life and began his ministry in England. Paul came to Canada in 1971 with his family to lead a joint Anglican/United Church ministry in Lac St. Jean, Quebec. While serving as Dean of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Quebec City, he played an integral role in the ecumenical movement in the city and established the French ministry at the Cathedral. He served as rector to St. Matthias Church, Westmount. In his retirement, he became transitional priest in Newport, Vermont, before moving to Stratford four years ago. Paul was also a member of St. James Anglican Church Choir, Chaplain to the Royal School of Church Music and associate of Isaiah 40 Foundation. Paul and his wife Helen Sarah (Smith) James recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. He will be fondly remembered by his daughters and their families, Sarah and Dave Hicks, and sons, James and Shawn Hicks of Ottawa, and Ruth and Josh Lovell, their children, Adam, Gabrielle and Megan Lovell of Stratford. A service of Thanksgiving and Celebration will be held at St. James Anglican Church on Wednesday, June 27 at 2 p.m. The family will receive friends at the church an hour before the service. Ven. Dr. Lorne Mitchell will officiate assisted by Rev. John Spencer. Interment will be in the St. James Anglican Church Gods Holy Acre. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to St. James Garden Fund, Isaiah 40 Foundation or to the Canadian Cancer Society through the W.G Young funeral home, Stratford, Ontario (519) 271-7411. A very special thanks to Dr. Tomlinson, the Palliative Care team at Stratford General Hospital, and the many friends who have supported Paul and his family over the past months.
