    We were surprised and so sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. When we were very young we would see Jimmy when we visited Marcia our close childhood friend. But we were also happy to see him once more at Harvey's birthday gathering a few years ago.
    Our heart goes out to Marcia and Jimmy's brother's Danny and David and to the extended family (spouses and nieces and nephews)
    
    May he rest peacefully now, and may heartwarming memories of Jimmy console his family and help them get through a difficult time.
    
    Time & love heal.

    So sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. I had met Jim through ComCare when I did his foot care. He was such a kind soul who always cherished his family and was so proud of his sisters boys for singing In their Their band and he often talked about fishing with them. It was a pleasure to have met Jim. My sincere condolences to the family and friends. RIP in Jim.

    So Sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. I first met Jimmy at Variety
    Village playing rugby. Jimmy was kind enough to drive me to games
    until I was able to arrange my own transportation. He was a great 
    help to me adjusting to life in a chair. We had a lot of laughs
    over the years at tournaments and dinners etc. My wife Brenda and
    I will miss his calls and driveway visits on his way up to Lake
    Scugog. R.I.P. Jimmy.
