James William Wilson

June 8, 1939 – January 3, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather. The end came more quickly than anyone expected, but was peaceful.

Jim was full of life, and relished every moment he spent with his family. He enjoyed a rich and active life and will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He will live on in the hearts of his wife Val, daughters Jennifer (Rigo) and Christine (Iain), grandchildren Christina, Sarah, Daniel and David, family in Scotland, Ontario and Quebec and his many valued friends.

A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at Eaglecrest Golf Course, Friday, January 11th, at 2 pm.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Old School House, Qualicum Beach or the BC Lung Association. To send a condolence to the family please visit www.yatesfuneral.ca
