James Joseph CONWAY

CONWAY, James Joseph - Very suddenly on November 22, 2012 at the age of 90 after a short illness. Quick was just the way he wanted it though after such a full life. Known as "Bud" to his family and close friends and James to his associates he was predeceased 4 years ago by his wife Violet of 65 years and never really recovered from her loss. He was a devoted father to Barry and his wife Sonia, Sonia's sister Emmy Holub and her partner Dave and their children Rob and Steve, loving grandfather to Jamie Conway and his partner Lisa, and to Jenny Conway and her husband Jeff Pootoolal, and proud great-grandfather to Ella, Jamie girl, Andrew and a yet unnamed but enormously pending baby girl. Always ready with a joke or quip Dad was fun to be around, a very generous, compassionate and mannerly guy and the most honest straight arrow known to mankind. He will be missed by family and friends alike, but at least he and mother will be happy again now. In accordance with the pre-arrangements he and Vi made themselves with Giffen-Mack there will be a simple cremation with no funeral service. An interment and celebration for the family will follow at a later date.
