James Robert ‘Jimmy’ Paschall

With utter sadness and mourning, we announce the sudden passing of James Robert Paschall, 20, of Cottage Grove, Oregon, on June 26, 2020, in Lincoln County. 

Born on March 30, 2000, in Springfield, Oregon, Jimmy was raised in both Oregon and Nova Scotia Canada. 

Mourning his loss are his mother and stepfather, Eugenia and Aaron Dickie, brother Joel Paschall (all of Salmon River, N.S.), girlfriend Jessica Hebb (Truro, N.S.), grandmother Kristine Havice (Oakridge, Oregon), step-grandparents Donald and Glenda Cock (Great Village, N.S.), aunt Heather Havice and her family (Oakridge), uncle Nathan Havice and his family (St. Louis, Missouri), uncle Isaac and his family (Randolph, Vermont). 

Jimmy attended high school in Truro, N.S. at the CEC as well as Hants North Rural High School in Kennetcook, N.S. Growing up, Jimmy loved playing video games, cooking and baking with his mother and playing Lego with his brother Joey. He was an avid fan of movies, particularly Deadpool. 

He immigrated to Canada at the age of 11 with his mother, stepfather and brother where they settled in Little Bass River, Nova Scotia. He enjoyed the outdoors and loved all animals, like his mother. He eventually moved away to work in construction with his father in Oregon. 

Such a short list of accomplishments underscores the tragedy we feel in Jimmy’s passing, as we always knew his best accomplishments were yet to come. Cremation has taken place courtesy of Bateman Funeral Home in Newport, Oregon. 

Interment will take place on a date to be determined at the Bass River Baptist Cemetery in Bass River, Nova Scotia. In lieu of any flowers or visitation, we ask that anyone wishing to honor Jimmy’s memory please make a donation to your local SPCA in his name. 

You will be missed Jimmy; forever in our hearts and never to be forgotten. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting:
