My deepest condolences to Jimmy's family; he was a kind sole with a big heart. Growing up with Jimmy there was never a dull moment. Many camping trips were spent at Easker Lake with his family. I will always remember him for his beautiful smile and his laugh. You could always find him in his parents basement rocking out
( head banging) to his music. RIP Jimmy, your journey on earth is done but the beautiful memories you leave behind will always remain. Until

Jimmy’s Family

We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to Jimmy’s family. I have so many wonderful memories growing up and the time I spent with Jimmy. Taking the bulbs off the Christmas tree to play paddle ball down in the basement with Jimmy, Dennis and myself. Aunt Claire screaming “Jimmy where’s the Christmas tree bulbs?” Jimmy and I took Uncle Courtney’s skidoo without permission and hit a tree stump ripping the bottom of the skidoo apart. Jimmy was as white as a ghost. He said my dads gonna kill me. This is just a small part of the many memories we shared growing up. I will miss commenting on his posts on Facebook. He will be very dearly missed. Love you cous!!!
