In his later years he found out he had a gift and passion for woodturning, making beautiful pieces of art.

Jim is survived by his loving wife Liliane (Comeault); son, Denis (Jenna); brother, John; sisters, Marylou, Pauline and Deborah; in-laws, Leo (Lorraine), Irene (John), Denise; many nieces and nephews; long time friends, Graham Baker and Dave Buffett.  He also leaves behind daughters Kimberly and Deanna and stepdaughter, Marina.  He was predeceased by his brother, Clyde; sisters, Ruby and Peggy; friend, Jim Napier.   A special thanks to the VON, for taking such wonderful care of Jim while he was at home.  Also, to the amazing staff at Melville Lodge for making Jim and the family feel so welcomed.  Arrangements are under the care J.
