April 19, 1944 – May 7, 2019


We are saddened to advise that Jim passed away in Grace Hospital after a short stay.

Jim leaves to mourn, his daughter Jennifer; granddaughters Daisy and Rosie; partner Pat; brothers Gary and Greg; sister in law Shelley and brother in law Barry; as well as several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews plus his special buddy Mr. Muggins. Also mourning are Pat’s sisters Margaret and Vicki. He considered them his family. Jim was predeceased by his mother Audrey born in Coleman, Alberta and his father William born in the Shetland Islands; sister Margaret and brothers Bill and Glen.

Jim was born in Winnipeg and spent most of his time here other that a short time in Quadra Island. He worked at several schools as a teacher but enjoyed his time at Gordon Bell the best. Jim and Pat enjoyed their winter vacations in Puerto Vallarta and this year seemed to be extra special.

Jim requested no service but hoped you would raise a glass with your choice of drink and think of a special time you had with him.

In lieu of flowers please donate to the Assiniboine Zoo.
