It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our wonderful son, father, grandfather, husband and friend, Jim Ramesbottom. Jim passed away Nov. 2nd, at his home with his family by his side.
Jim was born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, he joined the Navy at the age of 17 years and retired after 22 years as Captain. After leaving the Navy he followed his passion and went fishing (Commercial Fishing), for 25 years and retired in 1999. As a dedicated fisherman Jim sat on the board of the Comox Valley Harbour Authority from 1996 to 1999. After retiring from the board Jim continued his association with the Harbour Authority returning as Project Manager for the construction projects which included the refurbishing of the west side Breakwater walkway and the new "H" float on the east side. Following retirement he took up his other passion of golfing and RVing...going south for the winters.

He will be greatly missed by his mom and step-dad, Lillian and Gerald Bradshaw, his wife, Lorraine, Daughters, JoAnne Timms (Kyle) and Rebecca Ramesbottom, brothers-in-law, Dale Elderkin, Roy Elderkin, sister-in-law, Bev Henderson, his extended family, Dennis Mossey and Korey Mossey and also his 8 grandchildren: Maya, Kylie, Anna, Brooke, Tyson, Livea, Lola and Ryan.
Jim was very much a family man, who really enjoyed life. Throughout the years and through his different travels he made many good friends and will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
The family would like to thank Dr. Shoesmith, Jan and all the staff at Highland Medical Clinic along with the home care nurses for all their help and support.
