Jim married Sharon November 25th, 1967 in Trochu, AB. He built a farmstead east of Three Hills where he raised his family while working in the oilfield for twenty-five years, to supplement his love of farming and feed his growing family. He enjoyed a time as county councillor, loved family reunions, and inviting the neighbors to join in. His highlight was visiting with everyone he came in contact with at the local coffee shops!
We celebrate Dads life as he has gone to be with the Lord and are so thankful for the quality time we had with him.
