James (Jimmy) Edgar

Born Sept 12, 1927, Regina Sask., went to be with the Lord March 28, 2015. Predeceased by his parents and 10 brothers & sisters. Survived by wife Mavis, son Ronald (Vickie Coy), beloved granddaughter Tanya (Cory) and great grandchildren Ashley, Carson & Piper.

Jimmie had many passions in life, including of course his time with the Penticton Vees hockey team (World Champs ’55), golf, curling and his love for Penticton and its people he came in contact with through his many occupations. He also enjoyed teaching children to skate and taking Tanya to DQ when she was young, almost daily.

Thank you to all the people who helped care for Jimmy at Village by the Station, his doctors, as well as the home care workers, and staff at Summerland Sr. Village in his last days.

Private family service by request.
