    Jim. You will never be forgotten. You were my rock and always had wise words to make me feel better when I was down. Despite how sick you were, you showed such great positivity. You were such an inspiration. I feel broken without you here, but you are now in a safe place

    Jim, I knew you for nearly 13 years. Throughout those 13 years, you became a friend to me. Thank you for all of your help through school, and transporting furniture for me when I moved into my apartment. You were always such a positive person and I’ll miss having that energy around on a rough day. Until we meet again.

    I am sorry to hear of Jim’s death. He and I were colleagues at Lord Selkirk Regional Secondary School for a long time. He was skip of the rink I curled on for a number of years in the Lord Selkirk Teachers’ League. An ace curler!

    I am sorry to hear of the passing of Jim. We were colleagues and friends for over 30 years. He was an excellent Math teacher-always there for his students. Jim was an individual and most everyone accepted that-always positive. To the Family, no words can take away your loss and heartache at this. I wish you peace and comfort to ease this difficult time. I remember the Good Times.

    Jim was a very friendly neighbour always greeting us with a report on the weather or a chat about the dogs. He will be remembered as the quiet man walking past our house with his walking stick and his 2 dogs. Our condolences to Jim’S family.

    From being a student teacher in Jim’s classroom to later being a colleague in the Math Department I am thankful to have known him for many years. A structured but caring teacher and a superb storyteller Jim had the attention of students and staff. Condolences to his family.

    Jim was a great friend and co worker at Riverside Maintenance and Selkirk Air for several years. Jim loved to work. His nickname was no.1. He always had a positive outlook and a great sense of humour. We will miss him dearly. Thanks buddy for everything. Gary,Michele, Doreen and staff at Riverside.

    Joel, Jorn and families, friends, neighbors, we are so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was a special guy, always upbeat and ready to help. He was a fellow staff member at Lord Selkirk Regional and dedicated to his students, spending countless noon hours in his classroom so they could come for extra help with Math and whatever else. He also went above and beyond to coach students who were learning to curl, believing that curling could be a life-time sport and wanting it to flourish in our community. He was a man of many skills, and during retirement many of us were the recipients of his generous, knowledgeable help. He will be sorely missed by many.
