Jimmy passed peacefully after a long illness fought valiantly at home in Boston Bar but came to final rest in Hope Hospice care in the Fraser Canyon Hospital. Many thanks to Dr. Greggain and staff for their wonderful care of Jimmy.
Jimmy is predeceased by his parents and sister Debbie. He leaves behind a wife, Nancy Carmichael (Boston Bar), son Jessie, stepson Colin (Calgary), sister Wendy Clarke (Peachland) and many nieces and nephews.
For well over 20 years Jimmy worked as a grader operator for JS Jones – keeping the roads open and more importantly to him, the locals plowed out and able to navigate. Jimmy also worked during the winter for Emil Anderson keeping the Canyon clear. Jimmy generously volunteered his time helping his community with many projects.
