February 7, 1967 – November 9, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of James Morgan Mazurick (Maz) announce his sudden passing due to heart complications.
James Morgan Mazurick was born in Saskatoon Saskatchewan February 7, 1967. He suddenly passed in Chilliwack British Columbia on November 09, 2020.
At a young age James enjoyed hockey and played goalie for the Warman Wildcats. Also, James earned his Black Belt in Karate and became an instructor in his teens. James loved his music, various muscle cars and motorbikes.
He loved fishing, camping and especially liked socializing with family and friends at get togethers and card tournaments. James was currently enjoying farming, raising chickens and liked to be called “the Great Garlic Grower” of Fraser Valley.
James had a passion for helping people. As a young man he owned a drywall company. After dry walling James entered the world of corrections and became a correctional worker for over ten years in British Columbia.
After, James moved back to Saskatchewan he became a family therapist home where he helped many a young troubled teen. Later James worked the pipeline and potash mines where he was a foreman and operator. James was a member of Unions. James currently was working at Chilliwack Gravel Sales in Chilliwack BC.
James is survived by: His Mother Judy (Michael), Father Jim (Marlene), Sister Tammy, Niece Gen, and Nephew Jaran. James will also be missed by his numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
James will be truly missed by his sons Jesse and Justin (their Mother Cheryl). James leaves behind his beloved girls Lynda and Baillie (Allen)
If James could be remembered with one word or phrase it would be “Tough times don’t last…tough people do.” James was a ‘Tough Guy’ but if like many people that knew him he had a softer side that was always seen by the way he touched the hearts and memories of everyone that knew him.
James had a heart of gold. Friends would always comment on how he had an infectious laughter that would brighten up the room and the day with his mischievous practical jokes and very many funny jokes with his incredible sense of humour that would make anyone laugh.
During his many hours of crib and poker with his friends they would always comment on how James would play the game but during playing cards he had an intense twinkle in his eyes that showed he was always thinking and planning on other things.
The last thing that James could be remembered for is that he was wholeheartedly and boastfully proud of his 2 sons. He raised them to become the men that they are today and he expressed this so often with it emblazoned as 2 tattoos on each arm.
James was indeed a ‘Tough Guy’ but he will always be remembered as a kind, gentle, compassionate, loving and humble soul. He will be truly and sadly missed forever.
