It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Joseph “James” Poirier, 68, of Inverness. James passed away peacefully on Friday, March 20th, 2020, in Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born on September 8th, 1951, he was the son of the late John James and Julia Poirier, and stepson of late Margaret Poirier. As a carpenter and handy man, he was employed in the building of the Inverness Arena, refurbishing many local homes, and always willing to share his talents with others if anything needed fixing. After the sale of the J&H Diner, he began his employment with Shean Co-op for the next 32 years, starting as delivery driver and working his way up to department manager of produce. He was an avid hunter and fisherman teaching his children the skills and appreciation of both sports. James liked to dance and in better days would be the first on the floor and the last to leave. He enjoyed a good game of crib, 45s, or a competitive game of auction. But it was bingo that he enjoyed the most and many times filled in as caller. Being able to play bingo at home during his disability gave him something to look forward to. He was a true Toronto Maple Leaf fan and sadly didn’t get to fulfill his wish to attend a game. Holidays and special events were always celebrated and family, friends, and co-workers always welcomed to socialize. On March 1st, 2011, life changed and he was forced to give up his employment and involvement in community activities when he became disabled with Parkinson’s Disease. He fought a courageous battle for the past nine years before the disease and other health complications ended his fight this past week. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by an infant daughter; an infant sister; adopted brother, Gerald MacDonald; aunts, Margaret Webb and Mary H. Chiasson; step uncles and cousins. Donations in James’ memory can be made to Inverness Volunteer Fire Department, Stella Maris Building Fund, or Parkinson’s Association.

They were just asked to be ready to play some 18 hours after that 2 AM sighting; and for every 3-12 shooting turn we can peg on a night spent too late at a casino, there are dozens upon dozens of 30 point games that came just hours after the nocturnal habits took a bit of a turn. Not everyone can swat 714 homers while subsisting on a diet of hot dogs, cigars, beer and whiskey; and not everyone can play 45 minutes and drop a 29-point, 14-assist, 10-rebound line on the league’s best defense hours after thumbing through the blackjack tables.

According to ESPN Stats, LeBron James is 8-1 all-time in series in which his teams take a 3-2 lead including a perfect 3-0 in the conference finals. Carroll and Joseph noted they were accompanied by two police officers and two casino employees, to avoid causing a scene with fans, rather than travelling with an entourage as the story suggested. Raptors coach Dwane Casey said the two players in question are adults, weren’t drinking and broke no laws or team curfew. “The guy tried to paint a picture that wasn’t there,” Carroll said. “I think even reading the story, I think he said we were walking with a group of guys. We actually were walking with two policemen and two of the staff who were escorting us back to the hotel, because they didn’t want fans running up to us and all those types of things.
