Jim is survived by his loving family, his wife Sandy, children Sherry (Tom), Linda, John (Michelle). Grandchildren Maranda (Sean), Marleah, Alexandra (Steve), Jade & Mica; Great Grandchildren Abigael & Landon. Jim was also looking forward to one more great granddaughter to soon give cuddles to.

Also missing him dearly are sisters Pat (Richard) and Heather (Jim). Predeceased by Dad Al Rae (1975) and Mom Fran Rae (2016).€

Jim was a spontaneous planner who was always up for an adventure. He enjoyed time at his cabin, finding endless projects to mix with his naps and doggie walks. Jim made friends everywhere and had a knack for making people laugh and feel at ease. Over the years, his four-legged friends Candy, Pat, Lily, Carlos and Millie gave him good excuses to go for walks and meet people.

Jim’s big heart touched so many and we hope you never stop sharing all the crazy stories.

€A time to share memories will be held at the family home with an open house on May 12, 2018 from 11 am to 7 pm.
