My sincere condolences to the family. Jim and Trudi were both close friends during our high school days. Our subsequent careers took us in different directions but I reconnected with Jim after my retirement in 2009 and before his move to Toronto. We spent many good times together and for a time served together on the board of the Canadian Industrial Heritage Centre (Brantford). We shared a passion for literature and had many rollicking debates about our most-favourite and least-favourite authors. I will miss Jim very much.
So sorry to hear of your loss. We have many memories of family holidays with Jim and Trudi. Jim was well loved by his daughters and grandchildren.

It was truly a pleasure to get to know and befriend Jim over the past 25 plus years. I will always remember Jim's unique sense of humour as well as his willingness and patience to teach me as a young man fresh out of college. I will always remember what a true gentleman he was. You will be sorely missed Jim.
My deepest condolences to Jim's family
I remember this picture of Jim, my memory must be from Gramma's night stand or dresser. Sandra McVicar, my mom, read to me Rebecca's recent Facebook posts. My family is thinking of your family and Jim today as you make a visit to Beckett Glaves. Our condolences. Much Love. Don Sylvester
I so enjoyed getting to know Jim and Trudi in the 1980s and appreciated their dedicated support of my election campaigns as MPP. They were thoughtful and positive people. So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. My condolences to his loved ones.
I got to know Jim at The Brantford Club. My memories are of his fond discussions of his wife and family Jim was a true gentleman. May God bless him as he reunites with Trudi. Cheers to the two of you celebrating the last act.
