James Victor BJORK

On October 15, 2011 our beloved “Pa Jim”, James Victor Bjork, no longer beat the odds of a harsh heritage. He was an amazing and wonderfully unselfish man of integrity. He was deeply loved and respected by the family that he leaves: loving wife, Valerie; sons Shane (Jane) and Marty Wakelyn; daughter Kelly Wakelyn; (Dan Purgaj), grandchildren: Sheri Nash; Marshal Ward/Wakelyn; Mysteri Enger; Tiara Enger/Wakelyn; Nadine Wakelyn; Doug Wakelyn, and great grandson, Austin Nash. Sister, Linda Bjork; nephew, Vic Carriere; nieces, Louise Cousins and Sandra Pippus, as well as many cousins and good friends. Born in Prince Albert, Sask. (Sept. 12/1938) where he spent his younger years. He is predeceased by his parents – Vic and Mary Bjork, and sister Lorraine Frank. Most of his working life, was in Calgary, then later in Ladysmith, B.C., – in hospital administration. He enjoyed boating, fishing, and hunting, and was devoted to our family. We will miss his constant love and caring; thoughtfulness; as well as his quick wit and deep wisdom. No service by request. Charity of your choice.
