Sadden to hear of Jim’s death. Our thoughts are with Edna and her family at this time. Thinking of you.

From: Tony Hicks

Jim was a kind, gentle man who never had a bad word leave his lips. Whenever I saw that Jim was at an archery tournament, I would always smile because it was just great to be around him. The archers in his category would always realize that they had slim chances at the 1st place ribbon when Jim is shooting.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

“Shoot straight in Heaven my friend, bless you”.

My condolences to Edna & family,

Tony Hicks

From: Ken Davidson

Edna , so many good thoughts come to the forefront . Jim taking over Romas puppy , we archers whining over a close call and Jim would simply say “I`m giving you a five” and that was that . I was fortunate enough to compete with Jim up to the National level and his quiet sense of humour made each event a friends affair. Indeed I was forunate to have such friend and will miss Him.

From: Brock Paton

James you took me on my first 3-D archery shoot, after 7 targets I was out of arrows. I will miss you every time I pick up by bow. Many times we have shot together I will miss your words of encouragement and your joy at my errors.

From: Marion Black

Dear Edna, Helena and James,

I was so sad for you when I heard about Jim. He was so vital and active. Please accept my condolences, and take care of yourselves. Hope to see you soon.

Your Friend,
