It is very, very sad to learn that Jim is gone. I send my deepest condolences to Nancy, Michael, and Donna, their partners and children - and to Linda Stewart, his wife. Our family had also settled in Cork and Jim and Margaret were good friends. Our children had their early years together - often in our kitchen or theirs. I remember lots of farming and gardening tips shared, and many cups of tea. I remember him most for his warm and gentle heart.

Thank you to my gentle man Jim for coming to live here and share our lives and culture, wearing a cowboy hat and western shirts. Jim and I both love all sports including CFL football, baseball, rodeo and bull riding. He knew all the bull riders backgrounds. His favorite team was the MLB Atlanta Braves and 1st baseman Chipper Jones.
Jim was known here as the bird man of 6th avenue feeding hundreds of birds.
Jim loved to entertain friends who dropped in. He was also was a big lover of burgers and a cold cola!
He made me laugh every day. I will miss Jim always.

Jim was a great friend who could talk and debate on almost any topic. Over the past few years we recalled the long nights we would spend at the kitchen table in Cork trying to solve the problems of the world. I will miss his insights and dry sense of humor. Go to rest my friend.
