James (Jim) Allen Lawrence

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jim Lawrence, on October 21, 2012.  He died peacefully with family at his side after enduring a long struggle with his health.  Jim was born in Drumheller, Alberta – one of six children. In his lifetime he lived in many places throughout BC and Alberta, and his primary professions were entrepreneur, automotive painter, and professional driver. He was an avid reader, loved flowers, and the outdoors. He is fondly remembered by his family as being a man with boundless love and bottomless hugs.

Jim was a dedicated family man, and a good friend to so many over the years.

He is survived by his loving wife Carolynne, daughter Shayne, stepson David, and grandchildren Alex and Amy.

An open house will be held on November 3, from 2 – 5pm at the Canoe Seniors Centre. 7330 – 49 Street, Canoe BC

The family wishes to sincerely thank all who provided care and support over the past months, at Shuswap Lake General Hospital and Bastion Care Facility. In lieu of flowers, they have requested that donations be made to the the Shuswap Hospital Foundation in Jim’s name. The Foundation can be contacted at 250-803-4546 or by mail at PO Box 265 Salmon Arm, BC V1E 4N3
