January 13th, 1953 – June 29th, 2012

It is immense sadness we announce the loss of an amazing husband, father and friend of Williams Lake, after his courageous battle against cancer. Left with a hole in their hearts and lives are wife Debbie, sons Travis (Nicole) and Kevin (Lisa), his much loved and adored grandchildren, Lila-Dawn, Kara-Lynn and Jayden-James. His sisters Brenda (Tom) McGladrey of Nanaimo and Verlaine (Don) Fitzpatrick of Williams Lake. Jim will also be sadly missed by numerous other family and friends Canada-wide. There are so many of us that mourn the passing of this gentle soul.

He was predeceased by his parents and nephew.

Jim’s presence in our lives has been a gift we will always be grateful for. We will miss his smile, humour, loyalty, loving touch and one of the most positive and brave spirits we will ever have had the pleasure to know. We would like to extend deepest appreciation to our family and friends for your incredible love, support, prayers, and act of kindness.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 14th, 2012 at Elks Hall, 98 First Ave. South in Williams Lake at 1:00 pm.
