Jim Wilkinson


Jim (James Everett) Wilkinson passed away on April 7, 2021. He was born April 2, 1959 on Otis Air Force base on Cape Cod, in Bourne, MA. Jim was the second child of Marlyn MacKenzie Wilkinson and Jay Everett Wilkinson. Jim grew up in Connecticut with his older brother John and younger sister Stephanie.
After high school, Jim joined the Army and was deployed to Korea. He was very fond of Korea. After his time in the Army, he lived in New England, Florida, Alabama, and then eventually settled down in Machias, Maine. Jim spent part of his career as an auto-mechanic, primarily working on the heads of car engines, and spent the rest of his career as a carpenter. Jim could build just about anything: from decks, to kitchen remodeling, to building shelves and furniture, to framing, roofing and finishing houses.
He is survived by his step-mother Ginny (Virginia) Wilkinson; 2 brothers, John Wilkinson and Jeremy Wilkinson; 2 sisters, Stephanie Brewer and her husband William, and Jennifer Cooper and her husband Caleb; 1 niece, Karen Mundi and her husband Steve; 3 nephews Eric Hilgendorf and his wife Dana, Jonathan Hilgendorf and Andrew Hilgendorf; many cousins, grand-nieces and grand-nephews; his best friend and partner for many years, Sharon Baillargeon, and her son Lawrence, whom Jim loved dearly, and his fiancé Tasha Cushing. Jim was predeceased by his parents Jay and Marlyn; two uncles, Jeffrey and Carl; and his grandparents. Jim was a kind hearted, intelligent man - he will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. We will see you in heaven one day, Jim!

My good Brother. Always will love you Jim. Until we meet again in Eternity. (Thank you Jesus'!)

I've added some pics from when Jim came down from Maine for our wedding in September 2019. It was his last trip down here to Alabama, and now that he is gone I'm so glad he came down! Somehow it comforts me to remember that everyone was able to spend good times with him, one last time.
Even though we lived so far apart and didn't talk everyday, there is a void now just knowing that I won't see my big brother again until I join him in heaven for eternity. That should be enough, but it still makes me so sad!
I hope that Jim really knew how much I love him and that I wouldn't trade him for any other brother...

I only got to know you for a short time after Stephanie and I got married. I really enjoyed meeting you and was proud to have you as part of my (our) family. You were well loved by your brother, sister, nieces and nephews. You will be greatly missed by all of us and all of your friends. You are gone too soon.
