Predeceased by brothers: Les, Gordon and Alex (late Marjorie) and a sister: Jean Stewart (late Keith). Loving “Poppa” of Willow, Jack, Isaac, Cohen, and Grayson.

Jim enjoyed life to the fullest. He was a teacher, coach, golfer, and a great story teller. Most importantly he will be remembered for his unwavering sense of right and fairness; his kindness and generosity and his amazing sense of humour. All are invited to join family and friends at the Arnprior and District High School Gymnasium where a service to honour and celebrate Jim’s life will be conducted on Sunday afternoon, June 2nd at 2 o’clock. A reception will follow at the Arnprior Golf Club, Sand Point. In memory of Jim, a donation to Hospice Renfrew would be most appreciated by his family and may be left at the funeral home.
