October 10, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Jim Page, beloved husband of the late Helen Page (nee Klement) of Calgary, passed away on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at the age of 83 years.

Jim served for thirty-five years as a firefighter with the City of Calgary. When he wasn’t fighting a fire, he was busy moonlighting as a delivery driver for the Hudson Bay Company. Jim enjoyed bowling, golfing, cooking, gardening and working around his home. He was an avid and talented woodworking-hobbyist and enjoyed many seasons as a Calgary Stampeders and Calgary Flames season ticket holder. Jim is best described as a dedicated, helpful, and patient man.

Jim is survived by his daughter and son-in-law Tracy and Jamie Gallant; his grandchildren, Allison and Kevin Gallant, all of Calgary; his brother and sister-in-law Ed and Jenette Page of Armstrong, BC; his sisters-in-law, Georgina Page and Margaret Gould; his in-laws, Elizabeth Szmolyan, Leslie Klement, George Klement; numerous nieces and nephews; as well as the Southcentre coffee group who were such a big part of his everyday life.

Jim was predeceased by his parents; his loving wife Helen; his siblings, Bill Page, Marjorie Loewen and Fred Page; and his brothers-in-law, Charles and Johnny Klement.

His family would like to thank everyone that helped make this a gentler journey. Their presence was always felt and so greatly appreciated.

  6. I, and many other Paramedics and Fire Fighters, will always remember Captain Jim and his professionalism. He was always there to help and lead in a quiet way.
    His love of “cream corn” was legendary and was served with most fire hall meals.

    My prayers and love go out to the family’s. I have very fond memories of Uncle Jim when I was a child. Never heard him raise his voice, always a smile on his face and such a great sense of humour. I kind of thought of him as a hero because he was a fireman that saved lives. May his spirit live on in a new world!!

    Tracy, I had the pleasure of working with your father for many years and he is a person that I, and so many others, learned so much from. Not only for fire fighting but for his kind and caring ways and the respect and compassion that he showed to everyone. He had a great passion for the job and his family and that was infectious to all who worked with him. He will be greatly missed. (I even learned to like cream corn)
