Jim was a full of life with an with an outgoing personality. His smile and laughter always attracted many. He was a man of wit and you never knew what he would say but you can be sure it was what was on his mind. He was always ready for a good yarn and his mischievous side looking for a prank to pull.
Jim was born on November 16, 1941 in Burin Bay Arm in his family homestead. He married Carolyn on October 5, 1963 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Jim loved the outdoors, especially going in the 'woods'. He would jump from the supper table to lend a hand to anyone in need. We could always count on him for advice when you needed it, even if you didn't you would get it anyways. He loved his music, Price is Right and the evening news, he may have slept through it all but it had to on. He loved to go to the "Colony Trust" and listen to music with his friends which kept his heart warm with dance. He's dancing with the Angels now and laughing with his friends. We will always have our memories and he will be sadly missed and remembered by all.
In keeping with Jim's wishes cremation will take place.
