DON, James Alfred

Jim was born in Vancouver on January 27, 1928 and passed away peacefully in White Rock on March 5, 2010 with his family at his side. He is survived by Muriel, his loving wife of 58 years, three children, Kathy Smith (Kendall), Jim (Lisa) and Kelly, and five grandchildren, Lisette, Leila, Michael, Adam and Brendan. He is also survived by three brothers, William, Alan, and Ian, his sister Jean, and numerous nieces and nephews. Jim graduated from UBC, Faculty of Engineering, and had an interesting and challenging career in the petroleum industry in Sarnia, Ontario, Houston, Texas, and Fort McMurray, Alberta. In his younger days he enjoyed golf, curling and singing in a church choral group. After retirement, he continued his love of music through his participation in a local choir, and he and Muriel enjoyed travelling, gardening and playing bridge. The family would like to express appreciation to the care given to him at Evergreen Baptist Care Home for the past three years. No service by request. Cremation. Friends are invited to an informal gathering at the family home on Saturday, March 20, 2010 between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations, if desired, may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the charity of your choice.
