JAMES (JIM) ROBERT KIDD May 31, 1930 September 14, 2010 Jim passed away quietly at home after a battle with cancer at the age of 80. Jim is survived by his wife of 50 years, Gene; daughter Patti; son David; grandchildren: Kirk, Jennalee and Alyssa. Also surviving are sisters: Jean, Edith and Lois; as well as a multitude of nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brothers John and Stuart; sisters: Marge, Isabel and most recently Marion. Jim was born in Saskatchewan, the youngest of eight remarkable close knit siblings. Trips were inevitably centered around various family weddings and get-togethers. This closeness shaped his own family. To all that knew him, he was always friendly and ready to help when needed. For his family, no sacrifice was too great. Having been raised on a farm it was inevitable that he should study agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan and then spend his career with Agriculture Canada where he was a livestock specialist, based here in Winnipeg. A longtime resident of Windsor Park, he was quite active in the church, as well as various local seniors' groups where he liked to play cribbage and bridge. In keeping with Jim's wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service celebrating his life will be held on Friday, September 24 at 2:00 p.m. in Windsor Park United Church, 1062 Autumnwood Dr. Should friends so desire, memorial donations in Jim's memory may be made to a charity of one's choice. The Coutu family in care of arrangements: E. J. COUTU CO. FUNERAL DIRECTORS 680 Archibald St. 253-5086
