KERFOOT, James (Jim)

Born in White Rock June 10, 1929 to Donald and Doris Kerfoot. He passed away peacefully in Powell River Hospital after his courageous battle with cancer on June 22, 2010 with his wife and sons by his side.

His Living Life to the fullest attitude will be missed by his devoted wife and soul mate of 40 years Jeanne; his sons Barry, Richy, Bob (Carol) and grandchildren Budd, Elle, Beau, Tyson, Megan and Tessa.

Jim was raised on the family chicken farm in White Rock in the area of Kerfoot Road.

He attended Semiahmoo high school and enjoyed growing up around the pier area and was a skatecop at the old

Silvermoon roller skating rink and dance hall. Jim started as a printer, then had a long career in car sales and he and Jeanne started Kerfoot Datsun (Nissan) in South SurreyWhite Rock area. He was socially and physically active and was passionate for golf, cards and gardening. He had countless friends at Peace

Portal and Myrtle Point golf courses where he will be remembered for his life of the party attitude.

His retirement dream was to boat and fish B.C.’s coast, he found the Powell River area fulfilled his dream. He and Jeanne moved to Powell River for the small town lifestyle and became instant friends of the community. Any Celebration of Life gathering will be announced later. In lieu of flowers, say hello to your neighbour, laugh loud and often.
