Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Jim was my first real friend when I moved to Winnipeg in the 90s. I met him when I moved into the same condo building as him. We shared a lot and remained friends this entire time. He was so giving and loving to people. He would stop and graciously help people randomly who were suffering on the street and never said no to anyone. I know he’s at peace now. I am grateful for the friendship and presence of a wonderful human in our lives. Blessings and prayers to his family and friends. - Posted by: Terri Flatt (Friend) on: Aug 28, 2021

  • Jim was a very smart, giving person. He always greeted me with a compliment which was really nice. He was a very genuine nice guy. My fondest memory was when a bunch of us attended a baseball game. He told some quite interesting life stories. He also shared a few jokes which made us laugh. Jim will always be in his friends' hearts. Condolences to his family and friends. - Posted by: Alison Shade (Co worker at Wawanesa) on: May 29, 2021

  • My condolences to Gene and the Hazen family for the loss of James. In reading Donald's note, James sounds like someone who made the world a better place to live in. Rest in peace. - Chris - Posted by: Christopher Adams (Friend of Gene) on: May 13, 2021

  • I worked with Jim at Wawanesa Insurance for 15 years and he was my friend for nearly 20. He had a great sense of humour, but he was also one of the most thoughtful and generous people that I have ever met. When he won tickets to the Grey Cup that was played here in Winnipeg, he gave away both of the tickets! He would place snacks in the cubicle wall between him and a co-worker. He followed His Lord’s message to help people on the street with food, clothing, and more. He could never give enough. I say that his heart was as big as himself, or even bigger! Jim, I miss you, but know that you are in Heaven with your God and your family who have passed. Gene and family, I am sorry for your loss and pray that your memories of good times with Jim will comfort you now and in the coming years. - Posted by: Donald McNabb (Friend and co-worker) on: May 11, 2021
