Son of Duncan & Doris McRae, Jim grew up in Clearwater, MB.  In his younger years, he was an avid sportsman in baseball, hockey, curling and golf.  He had a quick wit and a great sense of humor, was a hard worker and an excellent handyman, and Jim loved to garden and spend time with his family.  He enjoyed wintering with his snowbird friends and then joined the Kelowna senior centre to play bridge.  Bright memories of Jim will remain in our hearts forever.
