His interests were family, golfing, boating and travelling south in the winter as well as many volunteer activities throughout his life, most recent of which was Ladysmith Citizens on Patrol.
Many thanks for care over the years by Dr. Britton-Foster as well as the wonderful staff at Nanaimo General Hospital. Special thanks to the staff at the Nanaimo Hospital Palliative Care Unit. They made the end of Jim’s final journey so much easier for him and his family.
By request, no service, no flowers, or donations.
Instead please think of Jim as you volunteer and offer help and kindness to others in our community.
