Shrewsbury – James C. “Jim” Joubert, 91, of Shrewsbury, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 6, 2022. Jim lived a life full of love, dignity, faith and family and so was his passing.
He was a loving husband to Joan E. (Raad) Joubert for 66 years and a devoted father to Jay Joubert and his wife Judy of Shrewsbury, Jayne Butler and her husband Joe of Medway, Jill Sullivan and her partner Tom Payne of Stowe, and Joseph Joubert and his wife Gina of Shrewsbury. He valued family above all else and leaves behind a legacy of integrity, strength, and honor for his 11 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
A 1949 graduate of Shrewsbury High School, Jim proudly served our nation in the United States Army. He then went on to work as an industrial engineer at Raytheon for over 30 years. Jim was an avid golfer and enjoyed coaching and watching his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren play sports.
James Dean once reflected that “If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he’s dead, then maybe he was a great man”. Jim was the greatest and will live on in our hearts for eternity.
