It was very sad to hear of Jim's passing and my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences go out to the family and his many friends. Jim had an unwavering passion for Cricket and was always involved in some capacity whether on or off the field. Despite obstacles, he persevered to advance the game when many would have given up. The awards and recognition he received for the valuable contributions he accomplished over the years are truly deserving of a man on a mission!
I have a lot of pleasant memories of Jim as I got to know him when I played in Ottawa. Always soft spoken with a smile on his face, he was the gentleman in Cricket. I was fortunate to play in a couple friendly games with him, albeit in the twilight years of his playing career and they were fun; but more importantly, the role he played as a teacher and mentor to me as I took up umpiring. He was very knowledgeable shared it willingly and was never too busy to offer an explanation or interpretation of the law when asked. He was always undeterred from spectator calls in the pavilion when they did not agree with his decision. His decisions were fair and I can remember him saying on many occasions, the doubt always goes to the batsman. Be sure when you make the call.
Jim, I am thankful for our friendship, support and teachings you provided to me. On behalf of all the Cricketers and fans, we owe our gratitude for what you have done for the game that we enjoy and for the many more who will. You laid the foundation and you had a tremendous innings. The higher umpire has called and may you rest in peace. Thank you.

We extend sincere condolences to Captain James Siew's family. Jimmy was a talent and a huge contributor to Ottawa Valley, Ontario (OCA) and Canadian (CCA) cricket.
May he rest in peace.

My heartfelt condolences to the Siew family.Jimmy was the face of Ottawa cricket for as long as I know. Whenever we would play there, he would be the first to welcome our teams at the Rideau ground.He was full of fun and laughter. Haven't been to Ottawa for a while and hadn't seen him for a while. Again my condolences to his family.

Jimmy will be remembered as a cricket stalwart in his days at all levels of cricket in Canada. My wife and I extend our condolences to the family for the lost of their love one. He was gentle in dealing with others and greeted friends with a smile.

As I can remember Jimmy was responsible for CCA secretary having a vote at CCA meetings. I will not forget the moment at the closing ceremony of CCA national tournament in 1994 held in BC. Jimmy as CCA president congratulated the players for their competitive spirit and camaraderie displayed during the competition. He followed by singling me out as a 65 year old representing Nova Scotia as manager/player. I was floored when he mentioned that I impressed him with my performance on the playing field. I walked away with a few awards presented by two current VP at the time, Ramesh Jagoo and Clifford Cox who presented me the player of the match award.

I prey our Lord accept him as the good sole that left us and comfort his family at this trying time.

On behalf of the PEI Cricket Association, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Jimmy's family. Although we have not met Jim, from the notes I read here, I feel proud of his accomplishments in cricket.

Many good things our cricket forefathers did in the past have paved way for us to move forward.
