  13. Jamie, Erin, Scott, Marlene, Stacey, Dana and families.
    I am so sorry to be reading of your dad, your son, your brothers passing. I have such fond memories of Jim while we were all growing up. Then further memories of Jim playing with his children (when the kids were younger). When thinking of Jim these are the words that come to mind:
    Great sense of humour, his smile, laughter, family, ready to help and step in, fun times, kept an eye out for us, like an older brother (instigator, co-conspirator, enabler, but a protector). I am so glad I had the opportunity to know him and I’ll cherish the memories always. Jim may be gone, but he’ll live forever within all your hearts. Hugs and love to you all.

  14. SORRY to hear about the passing of Jim. Our sincere sympathy to all of the extended family associated in Jim’s life. How quickly life changes. Hard to believe that life can be so short and leave behind so many people that expected him to always be a part of daily life. May the good memories give you the strength needed to remain strong.

  15. To all of Jim’s family and friends, I pass on my sincere condolences and prayers. Jim and I worked together on shift for many years and I enjoyed every minute. He made the hours go by fast with his sense of humour and stories of days gone by. He truly was, and always will be, one of the best guys I ever knew.

  16. So sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. Jim always a had a smile at the gate at Brigden Fair & Brian always enjoyed working it with him. Our thoughts & prayers are with you all.

  18. My condolences. Jamie,Erin,Scott,Marlene,Stacey,Dana and families I grew up with Jim in Brigden. Worked together for over thirty years at Tricil/Clean Harbors. Alway good conversation about the good old days in Brigden or about our growing families. His wit and sense of humour will be missed by all that he came into contact over the years. Never a dull moment.

  19. Jim, you filled a big hole in my family and I will never forget that and the love and memories you gave us. You radiated love unlike any other to those around you. Truly the best person I’ve ever known. I am really wondering what I am going to do without you❤️
