It is with great sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of our brother, Jimmie, at home on February 1, 2016. Jim was born at King’s Daughters Hospital on April 22, 1954 in Duncan, BC. He was predeceased by his parents Archie and Mary Hudson, his sister Dianne Brown and his sister in law, Marlene Hudson. Jim is survived by his siblings Douglas Hudson (Marilyn), Alan Hudson, Patricia McInnes and brother in law Jim Brown. He will also be remembered by many nieces and nephews.
In his youth, Jimmie moved with his parents to Tahsis until their retirement when they all returned to Duncan. As a young man, Jim as a crew member on a sailboat that was to sail from Taiwan to Vancouver Island. The boat hit a severe storm, the crew had to abandon ship and survived for fifteen days until a Russian Trawler rescued them.
Jimmie enjoyed going to race car races, working in the race car pits, fishing, camping, playing his guitar and socializing with family and friends. Jim valued his extended family at Doman’s Industries (WFP), Cowichan Bay. He worked at the sawmill for 38 years and eventually became the quad – saw operator.
The family would like to thank Valley Medical Clinic and Dr. Ibrahim for their care of our brother.
