July 19, 1935 - November 28, 2018
A BEAUTIFUL SOUL HAS LEFT US
Jim was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to B.C. in 1967 with his wife Joan and their children. Educated in Winnipeg, Jim worked with Westcoast Transmission as an Electrical Instrument Technician for 27 years. He leaves, in deep sorrow, his wife of 63 years, Joan; his daughters Laureen and Carol (Mike); his son Brad (Paula); and his six heartbroken grandchildren Carly (Mike) and Alexis (Taylor), Kenrick and Kelsey, Kaleb and Hailey (Gordon).
Jim was, first and foremost, a committed and loving family man who was securely grounded in reality. He was a loyal friend and a respected colleague. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed skiing, cycling, curling, and travel. After retiring, Jim was honoured to be a volunteer driver for the Freemasons’ Cancer Van Program for several years. His brilliant, ever present wit was unique and enjoyed by all who loved him. He will be sadly missed by many extended family members and long-time dear friends.
Jim had an extremely positive attitude, particularly during his long struggle with mesothelioma. We will miss his wisdom and subtle guidance in our daily lives. A special thanks to all the doctors, nurses, care aids, and volunteers that supported Jim over the last several years.
Jim was predeceased by his parents Mary and John Moffat, his brother Jack (Marg), and his sister Doreen Bryan (Les).
In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to Kamloops Hospice or the RIH Cancer Clinic.
There will be a celebration of Jim’s life in the New Year.
