Obituary of Jason Ronald McCoy
It is with unimaginable sadness that we announce the passing of Jason Ronald McCoy at the age of 49, from Sheffield New Brunswick, On November 11, 2023.
Jason was born in Fredericton, grew up in Maquapit Lake during his youth but had called Sheffield home for the last 18 years. Jason leaves behind his wife of 23 years Alison McCoy, his sons, who he was incredibly proud of, his pride and joy Benjamin and William McCoy. His loving family, parents Iris & Ron McCoy, Sisters, Stacie Macloon(Al) and Alicia McCoy (Roy Barton), Sister-in-law Lindsay Dicaire, Brother-in-law Mark Dicaire (Kristine) Nieces and nephews, Jessica Breau, Jacob Wilkins, Cody & Kylee Macloon, Hunter & Kenzie Dicaire and Mia & Ethan Price, and of course his beloved pups Maggie and Charlie. He was predeceased by both sets of grandparents, Violet & William McCoy and Alice & Charlie Kennedy, Aunts Ferne Barton, Barbara King, Barbara Allen, in-laws Linda & John Dicaire. Many Aunts, Uncles and cousins
Jason graduated from NBCC with a diploma in Civil Engineering technology in 1995, and started working construction and has been doing that ever since. Jason did many jobs from surveyor, foreman, supervisor and he excelled at every one. He was very well respected. He has worked for numerous local companies but had also worked in Alberta for several years. He was currently working with K-Line construction in Fredericton and enjoyed all the guys he worked with and was especially proud to be working with his son Ben.
Jason was always the life of the party. Singing, dancing, Elvis impressions, but he was also just as happy around a quiet fire with a full belly of Tony’s delicious steaks, and a drink of rum, or playing cards and dice with family and friends. Enjoyed his Hi Pine hunting Camp weekends with buddies, and of course anytime he could watch his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs. He loved to bowl Minto, and spending a day four wheeling with friends, boating on the lake with wife and kids, or taking a drive on the electric bike to visit Alicia and Roy for a chat.
To say he will be missed is a statement that does not even scratch the surface. We have a tremendous hole in our hearts that will never be filled. You live on through the boys - they have your personality, kindness and sense of humour, but they miss you more than words will ever express.
Resting at the United Baptist Church of Minto, NB (124 Pleasant Drive, Minto, NB E4B 2S8) with visitation on Thursday from 2-4 and 6-8pm and where Funeral Service will take place 12:00 noon Friday, November 17, 2023. (Please feel free to where your Toronto Maple Leaf Jersey’s.) For those who wish, donations made to the Oromocto/Fredericton SPCA or Red Cross would be greatly appreciated by the family.
