  • As a fellow Scot, from just outside Glasgow, next to Canada, Jim loved his association with his homeland. He was a keen Scottish Country Dancer and always enjoyed the opportunity to sing Scottish songs and attend Scottish gatherings. He had a great sense of humor and we will miss his cheery greetings at dancing. Jim will be remembered as a true Christian who loved his lord and was always willing to lend a hand when called upon.
    Our regrets to all his relatives both here and across the sea.

  • I won’t be able to make it to the service but I’m keeping Jim in my thoughts at this time. In spite of all he had to deal with Jim was always cheery. He was a dancer until the end and I’m sure that he’ll be leading a reel or two up there.

  • We knew Jim as a member of the Scottish Country Dance group. Jim was an inspiration. Even with his hearing and eyesight problems once he knew what to do he did it!

A couple of us got to know Jim very well on the trip to Israel in the spring of this year and it was quite apparent that he was a wonderful man who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
