Family and friends will treasure fond memories of him attending hockey games to cheer them on, he is also well known for keeping them all smiling and laughing with the humorous videos, images, and stories he would send them.

 The family would like to thank the Palliative Care team at the Brockville General Hospital for their compassion, commitment and ability to navigate the communication barrier due to Jim being deaf.  Also a heart felt thank you to the interpreters Sarah, Renee, Courtney, Erika and Debbie from the Canadian Hearing Service who were beside Jim to help navigate through his cancer diagnosis. The Family couldn’t be more grateful for all the love and support his cousin Elaine Pittman gave to Jim in his last years.
