James Fraser Pauley, passed away suddenly at his home, Wednesday morning, September 8th 2021.The beloved husband of Linda (Agostinelli) Pauley, he was eighty-three years of age.

Having been born in New Brunswick, Canada, James was one of four children, the only son of the late Ernest and Violet (Walton) Pauley. 

Raised and educated in New Brunswick, he was a graduate of Port Elgin High School.  Following high school Jim perused a position in Labrador, Canada.  The only way to Labrador was by plane, both in and out!  Five years later, he began his employment with Shell Oil of Canada, a position he held for close to twenty-five years. 

In 1962 he married Karin Pauley who sadly passed away over twenty years ago bringing a wonderful son, Christopher, and a wonderful daughter, Cynthia into the world.  His children; granddaughters, Madison and Emma; and his great grandson Carson his world and always enjoyed spending as much time as possible with them.

Jim was a true and avid cribbage player.  He played for enjoyment and had joined a cribbage club on line with others, who shared the same passion for the game.  It was here that he met Linda Agostinelli, another passionate player of the game!  Conversations began, visiting each other started and for the next fourteen years they “courted” travelling back and forth!

In 2016, they married and made their home here in the Hammond Square section of the City.  Needless to say, they both really enjoyed travelling and had taken some very special trips here in the United States and in Canada.

Jim was a very kind, gentle and simple soul.  He enjoyed all the wonderful natural gifts in life.  Over the years Jim learned how to make/can pickles, relishes, jellies and jams along with other delicious homemade treats, that you could enjoy all year.  A man of great faith, Jim had a rather quiet presence,  great smile, always involved,  a wonderful love of family and enjoyed all the simple pleasures in  life.  Jim and Linda have so enjoyed their journey together over the last twenty years, and it all began with a game they loved, cribbage!

Pauley of Rothesay, New Brunswick, Canada.  Dear step – father of Gina Agostinelli of Andover and Peter Agostinelli of North Andover.  Loving brother of Linda Maxwell of Canada and the late Marjorie and Doreen Pauley.  Cherished “Grampy” of Madison and Emma Pauley of New Brunswick, Canada and “GG” to Carson James Pauley.
