Very sad to hear that a very good friend, and CAC member has passed from his huge family of friends, family, and the community he adored. Jim is the ultimate friend, gentleman, and always arrived with a huge smile and an incredible ability to remember evryone he knew. The community, Canadian Athletic Club, and the city of Edmonton gained immensely from his tireless efforts.
He was and is my friend.
