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.
