MAG – Laszlo James (Jim), with Lil Bit, his dog at his side, passed away on May 3, 2009 at home. Born in Calgary, Alberta on September 15, 1958.
Jim arrived in British Columbia from Alberta in the 1980’s and went to work in Wakeman Sound as a chokerman for BCFP. When Wakeman closed he continued in the forest industry working in other logging operations. He was a shop stewart for the IWA. As years progressed he became a driller blaster for Interfor in road construction. This was work that he really enjoyed. Jim always had a laugh and seemed to touch all who knew him. He was loved by his niece, Emily, to whom he was a special friend, and is so missed by her. Jim’s passing has left a very large hole in our hearts. Wherever Jim travelled Lil Bit was with him …..they were never apart.
Be at peace my Jimmie and cradled in Jesus’ arms….
my heart is breaking and I miss you. Mom
