James Wilson Moffat

July 19, 1935November 28, 2018


Jim was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to B.C. in 1967 with his wife Joan and their children. Educated in Winnipeg, Jim worked with Westcoast Transmission as an Electrical Instrument Technician for 27 years. He leaves, in deep sorrow, his wife of 63 years, Joan; his daughters Laureen and Carol (Mike); his son Brad (Paula); and his six heartbroken grandchildren Carly (Mike) and Alexis (Taylor), Kenrick and Kelsey, Kaleb and Hailey (Gordon).

Jim was, first and foremost, a committed and loving family man who was securely grounded in reality. He was a loyal friend and a respected colleague. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed skiing, cycling, curling, and travel. After retiring, Jim was honoured to be a volunteer driver for the Freemasons’ Cancer Van Program for several years. His brilliant, ever present wit was unique and enjoyed by all who loved him. He will be sadly missed by many extended family members and long-time dear friends.

Jim had an extremely positive attitude, particularly during his long struggle with mesothelioma. We will miss his wisdom and subtle guidance in our daily lives. A special thanks to all the doctors, nurses, care aids, and volunteers that supported Jim over the last several years.

Jim was predeceased by his parents Mary and John Moffat, his brother Jack (Marg), and his sister Doreen Bryan (Les).

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to Kamloops Hospice or the RIH Cancer Clinic.

There will be a celebration of Jim’s life in the New Year.

Dear Joan & Family,
Our entire family is hurting along with you and your's.

Jim was always loved and will continue to be in our minds forever.

On a lighter note Jim promised me (Fred) decades ago that if he passed on first I would get his left handed golf clubs and his tool belt. His charm and wit spell bound us.

Your loving friends always,
Fred, Bonnie & Family

Dear Laureen, Joan and Family,
How sorry I was to read of your Dad's passing. Even though it has been years I still fondly remember his humour and teasing. Your family is so very close so I pray that you find comfort with one another and joy in sharing his memory.
Much Love

I will never forget Jim's absolute joy in everything he did. He had a love of life that was beyond compare. Always smiling - and always mischievous!
There are only birdies and pars ahead Jim. And all the ice cream is filled with Rollo's!!
The very best to all the Moffats.

Jim was such a wonderful brother-in-law and I will miss him terribly. Jim’s passing leaves such a large void in our family.

I am often brought to tears when I think about our loss but I am finding that I also smile a lot as I recall all the wonderful memories of having Jim in my life since I was a little girl.

Love you and miss you Jim.

This is one tough goodbye!
When Jim was made, perfection was achieved. He was one of a kind. He possessed a zest for life and an incredibly positive attitude. We will miss his friendship and the special times we shared over the years.
I have often said to Jane, "I am going to try to model my coming years after Jim Moffat."
Jim is well-loved and will be well-remembered by his very supportive family and his many friends.
We are thinking about all of you and sending love.
Jane and Buzz

Dear Carol and Mike,

We haven't seen you two since we all lived in Fort St. John. But I do remember how close you were to your Dad. May all your good memories be comforting to you.

Our Sincere and Deepest Sympathy,
Doug & Pearl Lautermilch
