Jan 1, 1946 – Apr 15, 2022
Dad passed away suddenly after a brief hospitalization. He was predeceased by his wife Audrey who was the love of his life. He leaves to mourn his three children, five grandchildren, one great grandchild, and many family members and friends. Growing up on a farm, he was raised to work hard, stand by your word, be grateful for what you have, and treat everyone as an equal. He was kind and generous, always caring for people and helping them however he could. Dad was a straight shooter (to a fault) who said what was on his mind and this sincere and genuine approach enamored those who he interacted with. In the days since his passing many people have reached out to us to express how much of an impression he left on them. As a husband, father and grandfather he was committed to supporting them in an environment of love, trust and resilience. We are forever grateful for the life lessons he taught us. In the last number of years diabetes impacted dad and we would like to thank the many medical care givers for their dedication and professional support with special thanks to those at the Stony Plain Wound Clinic. He valued his visits to the clinic, and you were as much friends as care givers. Dad is now back together with Audrey, his “little chicken” as he liked to call her. As a private family celebration of life is planned please think about your favourite moments with Jim as a way to remember him.
