James Dean Dickson
May 13, 2005 - September 9, 2020
It is with deep sadness that we announce the accidental passing of James Dean Dickson at the age of 15.
Born May 13, 2005, he was the youngest son of James (Jimmy) and Tasha Dickson. James grew up too fast. He was beyond his 15 years. He was born into a family of four older brothers, one of which was twenty four years old and three teenagers. He was the fearless one of the five and by the time he could crawl, if they were into a wrestling match, he would join in. By the time he could walk he thought what they could do, he could do also! If it was stunting at the bike park, driving a four-wheeler, skidooing or fishing, he was there. Because of having older brothers he always had older friends. His uncle Wade was his idol. Up until three years ago, you could find them at the outdoor skating rink, bowling, mini-putt, car races, biking, and watching videos. He’d call Wade every day to see what was up next! James would say “I’m Wade’s shadow you know!”
At the age of six when his grandmother told him he couldn’t use the “weed-whacker” as he called it, or the lawn mower unless she was with him, he told her “I’m six now and you’re too overprotective!”
James was a student at James M. Hill Memorial High School, was a team member on the Tommies basketball team, and also the Miramichi Twins ball team. His main passions were fishing trout with his brother Cody and his friends, biking, four-wheeling and skidooing.
Besides his parents, James is survived by four brothers: David (Jennifer), Jesse, Ronnie, and Cody (Taylor); his paternal grandmother Nora Dickson; his maternal grandmother Trish Dembenski; and his paternal grandfather Ronnie Malley; uncles: Wade, Brent (Wade) Dickson, Chris Oake; two nieces: Whitney and Victoria Dickson; one nephew Cohen Dickson; two special friends whom were like brothers: Matt Clark and Jacob Collette; several great-aunts, great-uncles and cousins; and his godparents Cindy and Walter Vautour. He is predeceased by his paternal grandfather Wilburn Dickson.
