Thoughts and prayers to all of you. I have many memories of trips to Ontario for visits and listening to my Dad tell stories of when he, Jim and Artie were young lads, they were more like brothers than cousins. We are forever thankful for Uncle Jim and Aunt Maureen making the trip to Lethbridge when Dad Passed. Thinking of you all and knowing Dad and Uncle Jimmy will be having a laugh in Heaven.

It is almost impossible to summarize why the loss of Jim means so much to so many of us. He interacted with people in so many spheres of life..His work ethic and engineering skills were outstanding and his enquiring mind never ceased to be fascinated by the world around him.
He had a wicked sense of humour and and his and Maureen’s hospitality was legendary in Ancaster. He was my husband’s closest friend for many years and our whole family will miss him.
Sending love and thanks for a life well lived
