After retirement Helen and Jim retired to Gravenhurst to enjoy the beauty and peace of Muskoka. Jim was an avid soccer enthusiast, being a youth league soccer referee, team and club manager and Toronto & District league administrator. Jim was a very loving, caring, unassuming and much respected gentleman who in his latter years loved listening to classical music and taking long walks with his companion canine Sophie. He had a unique sense of humour and always quietly enjoyed the company of others. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends everywhere. Many thanks to the doctors and nursing staff at SMMH who cared for Jim during his final hours. Donations in memory of Jim may be made to the Charity of your choice.
