<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jim on Monday, Oct. 4th, 2021. His death will leave a permanent void in the lives of his wife, Mary and son, Christopher. Born in Valleyfield, he is pre-deceased by his mother Inez and Father Norm (Flo) and sister-in-law, Susan Dunn. He will be greatly missed by his sister Donna (Gerry) and brother Sunny (Debbie) as well as his brother-in-law Bob. He will be remembered fondly by his niece Sandy (Norm), nephews Warren (Joanne) and Jared (Vanessa) and their children. He will be sadly missed by his many great friends, some known for decades and others more recent. <br> <br>Jim was known for his great sense of humour and his varied interests. He loved the outdoors, camping, kayaking and cross-country skiing. He was a great hockey fan and followed Formula 1 racing as well as other sports. He became involved for some years in acting in various local theatre projects. His love for travel and experiencing different cultures greatly enriched his life. <br> <br>Jim wrote for regional publications, the most recent being Main Street, a Laurentians community newspaper. Over the years he spent a great deal of time volunteering locally and regionally with many organizations in the fields of health and language rights. <br> <br>At his request, there will be no funeral service, but a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations in his name may be made to the Laurentian Literacy Centre or the Lachute Regional Residence Foundation. <br></div>
