  • I am shocked and saddened by Jim's passing. We spoke awhile ago and I was looking forward to a visit with both of you on my next trip to Winnipeg. Jim was a great friend to both my husband Bruce (deceased) and myself even though we have lived in Kelowna for a many years. Visits back to Winnipeg were always fun to reconnect with both of you. Jim was such an upbeat person and although he had many health issues, he had just such a positive attitude toward life. He loved his family dearly and also loved his little yorkie Harley. I am so very sorry for your loss and my deepest sympathies to Helen, his children, grandkids and the rest of his family. He will be so very much missed. God Bless, Anita McKinnon, Kelowna, BC - Posted by: Anita McKinnon (Friend) on: May 25, 2019

  • Jim Ross "The tall good looking guy" and a friend to many people, a great husband, father, and grandpa, he loved to ride his Harley, but Jim became ill and he had to accept the fact that his riding days were over. He worked hard to build a successful business, he was very much a family man, he was a very positive person who will be missed by many, over the years he was a member of the Shriners, car clubs, motorcycle clubs and he lived life the way he wanted. Jim thanks for the friendship, thinking about you, Bryan & Bridget Roberton - Posted by: Bryan Roberton (Long time motorcycle rider and friend) on: May 18, 2019
