It is with profound sorrow that I announce the unexpected passing of my husband and best friend of 48 years, Jim on December 14th, just 5 days before his 76th birthday. He retired in 1998 to Red Wing Resorts after 31 years working in Calgary for Canadian Occidental Petroleum, and had a wonderful 18 years. Besides his parents, Mike and Irene, he was predeceased by his sister, Beverly. Left to mourn his passing, along with wife, Shirley, are his step son, Mick Lerch (Nora Brittain), grandson, Joe and granddaughter Cecilia Jane, of Calgary. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 14th at 2:00 pm upstairs at the Eagles, 1197 Main Street, Penticton. No flowers, please; if desired a donation to the F.O.E. (Fraternal Order of Eagles), 1197 Main St, Penticton, BC V2A 5E6 and earmarked for the Penticton Regional Hospital building fund would be appreciated.
