Jim Williamson, of Bainbridge Island, WA died unexpectedly on Monday, March 13th, at the age of 51. The pain of his loss will never cease, but we are left with many memories of amazing times together to cherish. Jim was an incredible father, friend, mentor and family member to so many fortunate people. His gentle spirit, willingness to help others, and his persistent humor was something everybody felt in his presence. Jim's passion for fly fishing was strong, earning him the name "The Fish Whisperer" among many of his friends. He was also an extremely gifted artist and architect, a chef extraordinaire, and always a giver - just a wonderful human indeed. He will be so missed by so many people, but especially by his family including his beloved children, Madi and Bento. A celebration of life for Jim will be held on April 9th, 2pm to 5pm at Kiana Lodge, Poulsbo, WA. For those who want to donate, a website has been set up for Bento and Madi's college costs - https://www.youcaring.com/madisonandbentowilliamson-779061

Thinking of family at this difficult time, but also of good memories of time spent with my cousin Jim, who will always be remembered as "Uncle Scratchy" by my children. He sketched a couple of west-coast style drawings for us at a family reunion in Alberta in 2013. We framed them and I'm looking at them right now. What a great guy. He will be missed. Wish we could be geographically closer to you, but know that our hearts are with yours, especially Linda, Madison and Bento.

I won't be at the memorial this Sunday. Since the moment I heard Jim died he has been in my thoughts happily everyday. I realized how much I appreciated him as a friend, father and role model of grace. He stayed by his children and supported them thru thick and thin as a family to many. He was a warm hug and smile to me always. Thanks Jim for being a strong, loving man. Madison and Bento he lives through and with you. I am so sorry for your loss.

As Jim's brother, I feel very bad that we were not closer. I have read with interest and pride about all of the people Jim has encountered and had an impact on in his life. Different interests and distance did not help, but in dad hindsight I wish I had made more of an effort to stay in touch. Just today, Laura and I were at an art festival, and an artist displayed fish prints. It immediately brought memories of Jim while he was in that stage, and the wedding gift he made us.
