Jim was a fellow musician that often played drums in my band. His warm smile and warm spirit always made things more enjoyable. He will be missed.
I first met Jim in 1962 at Northern when he joined my glass 10G. Jim asked one day if I would like to hear he and a few of his friends who were starting up a band. That afternoon I became the singer for The Renegades and over the next few years we had some great and memorable times. ROCK ON OLD FRIEND
Gail and family Jim family. My deepest condolences on your lost. I so enjoyed Jim company. He was always so warm and welcoming. I enjoyed seeing Jim /Gail at the legion., (Jim playing drums several different people). I will miss his comments on Facebook. And will miss his presence greatly when I return to Sarnia this summer to visit. So sorry for your loss. Jim will be greatly miss by his friends. Deb Cameron. Moved from Ontario to New Brunswick fall 2021.
Although I did not personally know Jim, his sister, Cathy, is my sister-in-law, and so I knew of him by association with her. On behalf of my mother and myself, I would like to extend our condolences to the family.
Gail and family sorry for your loss. Jim was a great man. Always so friendly. Jim you will be missed RIP

Jim and I were friends. I went to see him play at various restaurants. I loved our conversations and prayer times we had together at church.
Gail, and the whole family - I am so sorry for your loss. Jim was so kind and supportive to me and so many others he will be greatly missed.
