Obituary for James Dennis Devereaux

Calais – Early Friday morning, June 1st, Jim quietly fell asleep in death after suffering from a devastating stroke eight days earlier.

He was a beloved member of the worldwide association of Jehovah’s Witnesses, being more recently a member of the Calais Kingdom Hall.

Jim was known for his quiet demeanor and great sense of humor. His kind nature drew many people to him and even more so after his beloved wife of 53 years, Joyce, died in 2013,

They had no children, but they were adopted by many in the congregations they were associated with down thru the years-thus leaving “children” in the Boston area as well as New Hampshire, Arizona, England, Wales and Portugal.

Jim was born at home in Boston in 1932. He is survived by a sister, Frances Marie Driscoll of Dedham, MA and a brother, Walter Joseph Devereaux of Plymouth, MA along with the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of his ten brothers and sisters.

He also leaves behind his wife’s sister and her husband, Glenn and Lois Stevens and their children, Joel and Mona Stevens and Jonathan and Gretchen Stevens all from Massachusetts.

His Memorial Service will be held Sunday, June 10th at 2 PM at The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 8 Odey Lane, Calais.

Light refreshments will be served.

Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
