October 19th 1948 – April 3rd 2012
It is with deep sadness that our family announces Jim's departure to a safer harbour. Pre-deceased by his parents James and Marjorie Mander, Jim is survived by his sisters Diana and Karen (Sepp), his son Clifford, his nieces Coreen and Kristin (Laurent), and his lifelong friend Bill. Jim enjoyed a special relationship with Coreen and Wayne's children Makiya, Matteo and Noah.
Jim graduated from Sentinel High School in West Vancouver and completed his college degree at Mount Royal in Calgary, Alberta. He participated in a variety of activities however his great love was the ocean; he became an experienced boater, enjoyed water skiing, fishing, diving and marine mechanics. Jim was most proud of the small cruiser that he and Bill built to cruise the local waters. Jim enjoyed a very successful real estate career on the North Shore and an early retirement in Campbell River, B.C.
Jim's dog 'Tic Tock' was his constant companion in Campbell River often tagging along in his backpack for bus trips from Stories Beach. His Craig Road home displayed many collectibles and the walls were covered with Jim's own nautical paintings of the BC coast. Throughout his life he used his charming personality to win over many friends and this certainly was evident when his family would visit him on Vancouver Island.
Special thanks to Dr. Carswell, nurses Neva and Katy from The Campbell River Hospital for their care and compassion.
A private family celebration was held to honor Jim's life. We encourage friends to join us in spirit by sharing a memory at
