We Remember

NICHOLAS, James “Jim”

Went home to be with the Lord on June 18, 2016 at the age of 88 years.  He is survived by his loving wife Halina; his children: son David, daughters Claudia and Sharon; and his step-children: Elizabeth, Lydia, Andy, Eva, and Anna; two sisters; and a large extended family.  James is sadly predeceased by his first wife Margaret in 2014.


James managed the Eaton’s Stores in Abbotsford in 1967 before purchasing the Abbotsford Hardware store in 1970, which he, along with his first wife Margaret, owned and operated successfully until 1990.

James received several accolades for his business acumen to include an honour in 1987 having sold over a million dollars-worth of consumer products through the Marshall Wells Cochran Dunlop group.  Upon selling the store, he felt his calling to do the Lord’s work and devoted himself to building excellence through the “walk through the Bible ministry,” which took him too many towns and cities as a Seniors Ministry advisor and pastor.

A Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

    We send our sincere, deep condolences to the family of Mike’s Uncle James. May God Comfort and keep you as you fondly remember his many wonderful qualities and accomplishments. He was a man who truly loved God and so we also celebrate with you as he enters his new life in the presence of the Lord.
    Love from Mike and Ingrid Greig

  • John and Carrie Coughlan says:

    I just talked on the phone with Jim a few days ago, so when we heard of his passing it took us by surprise.
    We send our sincere condolences to Halina and also Anna, as well as the other members of the family. This includes Dave, Sharon and Claudia and their families. A year ago we were present for the wedding of Jim and Halina. We would have liked to have been there today but we were unable to do so. Much comfort from the Lord at this time.

  • Bob, Paula, Ashleigh, Isabella and Jared Millard says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. With deepest sympathy.
    My Uncle James was indeed a true man of God. God Bless your family at this time.
