Obituary

Gansevoort

James E. “Nimmer” “Mex” McGowan, 55, passed away on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, at Saratoga Hospital with family and friends at his side.

Born on April 2, 1964, in Glens Falls, he was the son of the late David and Ruth (Beagle) McGowan.

Nimmer was a life member of the Gansevoort Volunteer Fire Department. He loved to hunt, fish and to dance in full gear in the Pow Wow at Moreau Rec.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, David McGowan Jr.

Left to cherish his memory include his son, Jimmy J. McGowan Jr.; his sisters, Colleen (Jim) McGowan, Lauri (Dave) Webster; his nephews, Joshua (Michelle) Warner, Randy Blanchard and Dawson Webster; his niece, Elizabeth (Bradley) Linendoll; he is also survived by three great nephews, two great nieces, three aunts, one uncle and several cousins. Nimmer is also survived by his extended family, best friends, and “brothers from another mother” Mike and John Mound.

Nimmer was loved by all and had many, many friends. He was always the type of person that would do anything to help out a friend. He will be missed.

At Nimmer’s request there will be no calling hours.

His family would like family and friends to join them for a Celebration of Life at 2pm on Sunday, Nov. 17, 2019, at the Gansevoort Vol. Fire Dept., 1870 Rte 32N, Gansevoort, NY 12831.

Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family at Mettowee Valley Cemetery in Pawlet, VT.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you and appreciation to Mike and John Mound for always being there for him and to his Aunt Claire for his guidance to the Lord.
