Jim had a life long career with the LCBO and he also owned the Lakeview Inn and Restaurant in Blind River. He had many outdoor interests and spent much of his time hunting, fishing, ATVing, snowmobiling and loving everyday. His proudest achievement was building his own log home.
We may never be able to see him again, but he will live in our hearts forever.
The family wishes to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Mark Deverell for his exceptional care of Jim and for the support he gave the family during this difficult time. They’d also like to thank the nurses and staff at NSHN-Blind River and SAH for their compassion and kindness. To our numerous friends who were supportive and reached out with their time, thoughts and prayers…thank you.
Jim will be laid to rest in Harve Boucher, Nova Scotia.
