It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of James on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at his home in Bracebridge.
James leaves behind his sisters; Colleen (Randy) and Mary (Mike), his nephews; Brandon (Bree) and Cameron, his nieces; Amanda (Stevie) and Lindsay. Great-uncle to Stephanie, Emma, Bentley, Hallee and Jaeda.
James was a kind and gentle soul who had a way of giving the biggest and best teddy-bear hugs. With the classic long white beard of Santa Claus, Christmas was a very special time of year as James would dress up as Santa and surprise all the children. James also found peace in fishing and a great thrill when hunting.
