After a long courageous battle with cancer, Jim Bourrie passed away in Chilliwack on November 20, 2004 at the age of 48 years. He was born in Winnipeg, Man. on June 22, 1956 and grew up in Toronto. His family moved here almost 30 years ago.
Jim was involved in automotive sales for most of his working career and also worked at Kent Institution for a number of years. He was an active member of the Legion. He was an avid golfer, loved motorcycle riding, computers and technology. He was challenged by troubleshooting and solving computer and car problems. Jim was a very social person with the “gift of the gab” and a great sense of humour. He was always joking and bringing laughter to those around him.
Jim is survived by his loving family; two sons, Brock and Kyle of Edmonton, Alta., one daughter Paulina of Chilliwack, his mother Vicky, two sisters Sandra and Cathy, all of Chilliwack, one niece Tanya of Toronto, Ont. and two nephews Jeff and Ryan of Chilliwack, several aunts, uncles and cousins in Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and Chilliwack and numerous friends in Chilliwack.
He was predeceased by his father Leo in 1987.
A Service of Remembrance will be held on Friday, Nov. 26, 2004 at 11 am at the Chapel of Henderson’s Funeral Home with Father Fred Tassinari officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvation Army Food Bank or to a charity of choice.
