JIM BORDIAN Jim left this world unexpectedly but peacefully on Thursday, July 12, 2012, with family by his side. Jim was pre-deceased by his wife Elodie (2010), and son-in-law Jeff Griffin (2009). He will be missed and remembered by his children: Kim Griffin, Tanis Bordian and Curtis Bordian.

Close friends Emil and Rose Bruneau, nephew Gerry (Gail) Bordian, as well as numerous friends and other family. We would also like to give special thanks to Oliver Simner for his dedication and loyalty to Dad. Dad worked in the heavy construction industry all his life. Upon his retirement , he started his own heavy equipment business. He had been working on one of his Caterpillars just days before his passing. Dad was a perfectionist. Do it right or don't do it at all. Dad spent his time between his home in Winnipeg and cottage in St. Malo. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed going to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren's sporting events. He was so proud of them all. Dad, we love you and will miss you. A memorial service to celebrate Dad's life will be held on Thursday, July 19, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd., Winnipeg, MB, R2J 4J4. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Craig Street Cats, 489 Madison Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3J 1J2 (Ph: 421-1919) or to a charity of one's choice.
