It is with great sadness that we announce Jim Semper, much loved husband of Eyren Semper of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday May 29, 2013 at the age of 66 years.
Jim grew up in Teslin, NWT and Edmonton, AB where he began working in the transportation industry which eventually led him to Calgary. Jim had a successful career as a regional manager, meeting many lifelong friends along the way. Jim was an avid golfer and singer and a professional ski instructor with the CSIA for over 25 years. In the summers Jim could often be found perfecting his garden or helping a neighbour with a weekend project.
Besides his loving wife of 33 years, Jim is survived by two children, Connie and Cameron; sister Pam; brother George (Linda) and their families; as well as extended family, in-laws and many friends. He was predeceased by his parents Jim and Adeline and his sister Doris.
