Died April 10, 2018 at C.V.R.H.

Jim is survived by his brother Stuart (Shirley), wife Barbara, daughter Lisa, son Jamie, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

His favorite niece, Kathleen, kept him looking like the gentleman he was, even when there was nothing left to trim.

Jim was so proud of this Lodges, Past Mater St. John’s, Past Worthy Patron Sharon #4 Eastern Star, Scottish Rite, Royal Arch and Nanaimo Shiners Club.

Jim served three years in the Canadian Navy. He worked as a longshoreman for 38 years.

He was a very kind man who would help anyone.

Thank you to Dr. T. Morris for keeping Jim with us longer than ever was expected and to all the staff at CVRH.

Jim’s ashes will be scattered in the Elk Valley area where he spent his summers fishing.
