In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our much-loved father, son, brother and papa, Jim Anderson on January 18th, 2023 at the Trail Hospital with family at his side.
Jim was predeceased by his father James and survived by his children Barry and Heather (Anthony), his grandchildren Caleb, Presley, Henry and Alice, and his mother, Catherine.
Dad was born in the Peace region, Alberta where he spent his formative years before moving to Okanagan Falls in BC. As a young person, he loved water skiing and skating on Skaha Lake. He played hockey throughout his younger years and into adulthood and found a love for the game of cricket while attending prep school in Vernon, BC.
In his late teen years, Dad moved to Vancouver Island where he started logging in the forests around Port Renfrew, eventually moving to Duncan to raise a family and start his own logging company. With his time in forestry, he made many lifelong connections and worked all around British Columbia.
Anyone who knew our Dad knows his love for sports. Once he retired from playing hockey, he could always be relied on to know old players and their stats and may have been one of the longest-running subscribers to his beloved Hockey News.
Dad had a great love for his family and friends. It was apparent towards the end of Dad’s life that he had surrounded himself with amazing people who cared deeply for him.
Our family would like to extend our gratitude to the staff at the Trail hospital who treated our dad and family with such compassion and amazing care.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 29th, 2023, at 1:00 pm at the Salmo Legion. Carolyn Penosky of Clark’s Funeral Services has been entrusted with arrangements.
“We will love and
miss you forever”
