Jim was born in Rockglen Saskatchewan and grew up on a farm near Wood Mountain. He was a hard working man who spent 35 years working throughout the prairies in the propane industry. He loved camping, fishing, fixing things, and woodworking. He was constantly saving bits and pieces of this and that to repurpose into something new. Jim had a goofy sense of humour, was always teasing and telling jokes, and liked to make up his own silly lyrics to popular songs. Most of all, Jim loved his wife Ruth, whom he married June 3rd, 1960 (59+ years). Jim cherished his three daughters, Valerie, Sandra, and Lesley, and his chosen adopted daughter Kim. His grandchildren James, Hayden, and Austin, and his sons-in-law Mike (deceased) and Rick were very near and dear to his heart. Jim had two brothers and one sister: Mick (deceased), Jack, and Caren, and many nieces and nephews. He was a family man who was sincerely loved and will be deeply and dearly missed by many.
