Jim, a lifelong resident of Uxbridge has passed away peacefully in his 77th year at the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital. He will be deeply missed by his family and many friends. Jim will be fondly remembered for his passions over the years and for always being willing to lend a helpful hand. He enjoyed woodworking, skating, golfing, biking, cheering on hockey & baseball and his Tim Horton’s daily social. His greatest passion was his love for custom hot rods and vintage classics.
