James (Jamie) Warren MacDonald
January 22, 1970 ~ August 31, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Jamie, after a brief but valiant battle with cancer. He was surrounded by the love of his family and his many, many friends. Jamie was born and raised in Chilliwack, where we attended Bernard Elementary, A.D. Rundle Middle School and graduated from Chilliwack Senior Secondary. He had many interests, which he pursued with extreme vigor and passion. He was an amazing self-taught artist, and also had a fondness for acting. He was part of the Chilliwack Player’s Guild for many years and from a young age he acted in such plays as Oliver, The Music Man and The Christmas Carol. Jamie was always very passionate about BMX racing and over the years he won many trophies. That passion developed into a love of motors and speed, owning a ‘65 Pontiac MR2, street bikes and racing motorcycles. Jamie also loved the many family camping trips down the Oregon coast and up to the Okanagan. As far back as anyone can remember, Jamie had a smile that lit up any room he walked into and his laugh could brighten anyone’s day. He always had an easy time making friends; making and maintaining friendships from every walk of life. For many years he worked at Safeway and came to have many wonderful friends there. He will be greatly missed by his mom and dad, Eileen and Walter, sister Kathy (Barey), brother Rod (Sandy), his niece Mikayla and nephews, Mitchell, Michael, Cris, Jason, Kris, Trevor (Kristalyn) and Jeremy, as well as many cousins. A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, September 13 at the Lions Club Hall on Spadina Ave., Chilliwack at 2:30 pm.
