Jim past away suddenly at the age of 86 at the Dryden Regional Health Centre on Saturday, June 5, 2021 with his wife and son by his side with grandchildren and great grandchildren watching at the window. He loved snow shoeing, bowling, stamp collecting, gardening, playing guitar and harmonica, watching hockey, going for a walk, fishing and computer puzzles. His greatest joy was his family.
