Jim was a member of several different organizations, however was most passionate about being a Shriner. He wore his fez with great dedication and was very proud of what it represented. Jim remained active in the Shriners and proudly served as Potentate of Al Azhar Calgary in 1995. In the many years as a member, he formed a great number of cherished friendships.
Jim loved travel and was never happier than when he was behind the wheel of his motorhome.
Unfortunately, Jim recently suffered a heart attack from which he never recovered. He will be deeply missed.
Our family would like to say thank you to the 5A staff at the Chinook Regional Hospital for the care he received during his time there.
