CASTLE – James ( Jim) David

September 27, 1934 – September 1, 2009

It is with much sadness that we say goodbye to a wonderful husband, father, and friend. Jim died suddenly of congestive heart failure and complications in Reno, Nevada.

Jim was an organ donor and was held in high esteem by his many friends. He had served over twenty-five years in the Armed Forces, LDSH (RC) in Germany, Canada and twice in the Middle East, Cyprus, and was one of the first Canadian Soldiers in the Golan Heights. Jim also worked for fourteen years for the Calgary Public School Board.

Jim is survived by his wife of fifty-two years Barbara, son David, daughter Bonnie, son-in-law Bruce, sister Peggy and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents and two older sisters.

A Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, if one so wishes, please make a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, www.heartandstroke.ca or to the Canadian Diabetes Association, www.diabetes.ca.

In living memory of Jim Castle, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

    We always looked forward to seeing James at Tim Horton’s in the morning. His face was usually in the newspaper, doing the sudoku puzzle. Always had a good story to share, & loved to tease. We will miss his company in so many ways. Our thoughts go out to his beloved wife, Barb, & to his family. Take care, & God Bless.
