CAINE, James Lawrence. On June 26, 2012 Jim passed away quietly surrounded by his family. He will be missed by his wife Evelyn of 61 years; children, Neil (Pam), Lynn (Brian), Greg (Kim); grandchildren, Brandy (Greg), Kerri, Amy, Leanne; and his great grandchildren, Tayven & Oliver. He is survived by two sisters, Harriet & Louella; brother and sister-in-laws, Jack, Eleanor, Don (Cathy), and other relatives, nieces and nephews.
Jim was born on January 9, 1927 in Edmonton to Harry and Bertha Caine, the 5th of 7 children. He grew up on the farm, and later joined the Army. After his release from the military he worked in the Alberta oil fields. During this time he met and married Evelyn, and a few years later they moved with their young family to Surrey, BC to establish a fur farm. Shortly thereafter they made their home in White Rock. Jim was a successful businessman, having developed several properties in the gravel business. Jim enjoyed traveling, tending his llamas and gardening. He encouraged and supported his family above all else and family gatherings were his greatest joy. His love and his values will live on with us all forever. The family appreciates the wonderful care provided by Dr. Kanagaratnam, the Fraser Health Palliative Care Team and the Peace Arch Hospice. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the White Rock Hospice Society or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC in Jim’s memory.
A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at a later date.
