It is with heavy hearts that we need to say goodbye to our parents, James and Margaret, as they have passed on to a new place. Our father was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1926 and when he was just a wee lad, his parents moved back to Scotland. Our mother was born in Fife, Scotland in 1928.

It is with heavy hearts that we need to say goodbye to our parents, James and Margaret, as they have passed on to a new place. Our father was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1926 and when he was just a wee lad, his parents moved back to Scotland. Our mother was born in Fife, Scotland in 1928. They married in 1950 in Scotland and shortly after that they moved to Youngstown, Ohio to live the American Dream. Dad was a successful parts manager at State Chevrolet. He was a great provider for our family. He loved his girls. He would take the family on long Sunday drives; picnics, swimming, ice skating, sled riding and whatever else we wanted to do. He was great. Mom stayed at home to look after us. She was a wonderful cook and homemaker. She loved crafts and painting. She also loved her animals. She was totally unselfish when it came to her children. Dad was given an opportunity to manage a parts department in Albuquerque back in 1982. So, the family made its way out west. Once he retired, they moved to Las Cruces to be closer to their kids. Just after their 65th anniversary; mom passed away on August 22, 2015 after a long illness. Dad remained with us for 3 more years missing mom every day. He joined her side on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. We believe it was from a broken heart. But they are together again... Forever…As it should be. We would like to take a moment to thank the staff of Casa Bella Assisted Living. Also, Julie, Janet, and Jeanette from Amber Care; for all the care you gave to our father. WE LOVE AND MISS YOU ALWAYS, Jill, Joey, Sandy, Gary, Sean, Jocelyn and Tessie. Cremation has taken place and there are no services planned. They will be laid to rest at Masonic Cemetery after they have been taken back to their home in "bonnie" Scotland for a visit…
