January 20, 2021
It is with heavy hearts and unbelievable sadness we announce the sudden death of Jim on January 20, 2021.
Jim was born in Saskatoon, SK and grew up on the family farm in Young, SK. In his early 20’s he headed to Calgary to pursue his dream of becoming a salesman. A successful career he was very passionate about spanned over 40 years, primarily with Ford Motor Company winning numerous awards one of which being the #1 salesman in Canada.
He moved from the big city to Salmon Arm, BC in 1990 where he continued his dream job and enjoyed boating and camping on Shuswap Lake, later exchanging this pleasure for vacations in Mexico.
He will be missed by many and remembered for his kindness, compassion, honesty, integrity and his fun loving ways.
Jim will be remembered by his wife Leslie, son Anthony (Sara), daughter Danielle, step daughters Tracey (Curtis), Jacey (Tyler), 8 grandchildren, mom Wilma (John) Sookocheff, sister Laurie (Darryl), brother Les (Vikki), nieces Regan, Nicole (Ward), nephews Glen (Kathleen) and Graeme (Jessica). He was predeceased by his father Bill, brother Glen and nephew Adam.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
