Again our deepest sympathy to all the family.

  • Neil Hamm says:

    I began to work for Jim & his partner Ron when they started Northside Automotive in Saskatoon, SK. They were the best bosses a person could have. One day Jim called me aside and side, “Neil, I know you are putting in a lot more hours than what you put on the time card. You’re cheating yourself. I want you to be honest.” Years later, when I left to start my own business, they took us out for a wonderful steak supper and told me that the door was always open if things didn’t work out for me.

  • Dan Vandale says:
