James “Jimmy” Kelly Ryan

May 14, 1960 ~ February 9, 2017

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of James “Jimmy” Ryan at Royal Columbian Hospital after an amazing courageous battle to the end from liver disease. Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Jimmy followed his father’s footsteps in the mining industry. Jimmy traveled to Canada to the US to work in many different mines. Jimmy settled in Franklin, Louisianna for 27 years of his life. Moving back to Canada in 2005 with the encouragement of his now wife Jacqueline to finally settle in Chilliwack. Jimmy had a heart of gold and lived his life to the fullest as much as he could with no complaints. He was loved by all of those who had the privilege of being a part of his life. He will forever be remembered and missed each and every day by his wife Jacqueline; stepson Curtis (Anita); grandchildren; sisters Maureen and Sheila; nephews Ryan and Sean; niece Shelly Ryan; and great niece Kaylee Ryan; and all of his friends who shared his life. Jimmy is reunited with his parents Pearl and Austine; brother John (you meet again) and Uncle Willie. Now there’s a party in paradise. Thank you to all the amazing staff at Royal Columbian Hospital. A celebration of Jimmy’s life will be at his home in Chilliwack at 46191 Princess Ave., after 1:00 pm on May 6, 2017. Food and BYOB. Donations would be appreciated to the Liver Foundation in Jimmy’s name. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting: www.bakerviewcrematorium.com
