Jim leaves behind his daughter Kimberley; sister Marlene; brother Johnny; beloved granddaughters, Abigail and Hazel; as well as many great friends and neighbours. Jim was predeceased by his wife Shirley; parents, Clifford and Doris; as well as sisters, Linda and Diane.
Jim was incredibly generous and would give the shirt off his back to help his friends and neighbours. He loved carpentry and there were many days that you would find him tinkering with something in his garage. He was always the first to welcome new neighbours to the neighbourhood with a smile and an offer to help with anything they needed. One of Jim's great joys was putting on his Santa suit and seeing the magic of Christmas in children's eyes. The other great joy in his life was his dog Oscar. He walked 5k a day with Oscar and would take him everywhere he went. Tim Horton's and Crescent Drive Park were where you could find them every morning walking with the deer and all the friends they met along the way.
The celebration of Jim's life will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, located at 603 Wellington Crescent.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to CancerCare Manitoba or forward an act of kindness to someone in need.
