May 4, 1940 – September 13, 2012
After a lengthy illness, Jim passed away peacefully at the Foothills Hospital on September 13, 2012 at the age of 72 years.
Jim will be greatly missed by his family and also his neighbors and their children who would visit “Mr. Jim” as he held court on the front deck from Spring to Fall. He was “that man” at Crystal Creek who gave away more product to the kids than he sold. Some of them came to just visit him or to bring him a present of something they had made just for him.
Jim is survived by his loving wife Mona, of fifty years; his children, Matt Ferguson of Shanghai, Laura (Kurt) Knudsen of Folsom, CA and Dan Ferguson of Calgary; his grandchildren, Nick and Ava of Folsom, CA; his sisters, Wilma Anderson and Judy (Richard) Buckingham along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Jim was predeceased by his parents Mamie and Chris; his brothers Ron and Bruce, and his sister Barbara Bulmer.
We love you darling Jim and will greatly miss you.
