We all have fond memories of Jim. He was a warm and caring person with a subtle sense of humor. We especially enjoyed spending time with him during summer vacations at the beach. John will also miss occasional lunches and friendly conversations solving the world’s problems. God Bless you Jim. —-john and Karen.

Jim's family ( in which he grew up) was very close to Scott's parents, Marcia and John Provan. We are very sorry to hear of his illness and loss of life. We send our deepest sympathy to Toby and all the family and have wonderful memories of family get-togethers over the years. From Jane and Scott Provan

Jim was our friend. We loved him. You see, Jim and Kim went on a number of adventures with the Norris family, which included the core family, those of us who married into this lovely family and friends and more family through those folks. We are so blessed with all of this love.
Jim was a kind, soft-spoken, friendly man. He had a smile that greeted you and made you feel happy. When Jim talked to you, he had an interest in what you had to say. You knew that he was pleased to be a part of the conversation. He was a solid, unassuming man. It was an absolute joy to be with him
The thing that I think many of us will remember most about Jim was his constant devotion to Kim. He loved her so much. It was apparent in the way he lit up when she was there. I cannot imagine him more joy-filled than when he was with her. Kim and Jim were perfect for each other.
We will miss Jim greatly,
God bless all who grieve this sweet man,
Lynn and Cindy Norris
