Unexpectedly, in Abbotsford, BC on Monday, April 15th, with Lynne by his side, James lost a courageous two-year battle with cancer. An innovative designer and boat builder, sculptor and photographer, James loved to work with his hands and loved to be on the water. He grew up in Ontario, but loved Canada east to west and made BC his home with his family. James is survived by his wife Lynne, sons Benjamin and Jacob, parents Peter and Janet, and loved by in-laws Isabelle and Dennis Baker of Edmonton. He is also survived by siblings John (Paula), Sarah, Peter (Jennifer), nieces Rebecca and Charlotte, sister-in-law Gwen Weber and family.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation at 610 University Ave., Toronto, ON M5G 2M9, would be greatly appreciated.
