Our sincere condolences to the family on hearing of Jim ‘s passing. Being a young greenhorn when I started with Alberta Power, I always appreciated Jim’s expertise and help on projects in the Grande Prairie region.

Sarah and Art Bohnet

Jim and I were both wardens at St. Patrick’s and he became a role model for me, always remaining calm and focused and never losing his priorities. He had a great sense of humour, too, and we had many chats about books. He will be greatly missed.
