Jim passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 surrounded by his loving family. Jim is survived by his wife Terry; daughters, Lauren (Cameron) and Rachel (Michael); mother Doreen; and brothers, Ray and Rick. He was predeceased by his father Ed. Jim was a devoted husband, loving son, caring father, and a true friend. Jim was born in Vancouver, BC. He moved to Edmonton in the 1970's where he met Terry, his wife of thirty-two years. Jim had an entrepreneurial spirit all his life. For over thirty years, he led a successful surface land company, Petro J Land. He and his staff took great pride in their stellar reputation. Jim's greatest joy was truly his family. He brought immeasurable happiness to his family and his loss will be deeply felt.
"There should be no despair - though tears
May flow down like a river:
Are not the best beloved of years
Around your heart forever?"
