Dr. James BURNS

BURNS, Dr. James H.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. James H. Burns (“Bob”), retired psychiatrist, on July 29th, 2014, aged 86 in Langley, BC. A true patriarch, his wisdom, advice, and support will never be replaced, and will always be remembered. He was predeceased by his eldest son, Richard, and two better, kinder men this world will not see again. Bob is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Ann, sons Robert (Judith), and Ian (Laura), his daughter Eleanor (Rudy), and Richard’s wife Susan. His grandchildren, Liam, Erin, and Fiona, have known their grandfather long enough to have received his message that one can do anything one sets their sights on, and the only limits are those that are self-imposed. Bob’s success in all things, including family, work, and sailing, was a result of the passion and dedication he brought to everything in his life. We will miss him so much.
