Jim was born June 4, 1948 in Ottawa, ON. He was one of three children and was the only son of Les and Lil Reynolds. Jim was a geologist by profession, beginning his career in Calgary. In 1983 Jim, with his family move to Jakarta, Indonesia where he was employed until his passing. Lorraine and Les were Jim’s source of inspiration and support. He loved family get togethers, a good cigar and a good book, a good joke, having coffee on the deck in the morning, a few beers with his friends and he loved his Cherry Blossom bar. He was a very simple person and didn’t like a lot of fuss. Recently Jim told his son, Les, “I’ve got the best of two worlds. I love getting up in the morning and going to work. I love doing geology. I’ve got the option to choose how long and how much I want to work. What more can I ask for?” We love you Jim, rest in peace.
