Jim Ogilvie was remembered last Friday, August 29, as a leader, a man who did nothing but good for Kimberley, but most importantly, as a husband and father.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre (one of Ogilivie’s projects) to pay their respects to the longtime mayor.

The eulogy was given by friend John Daigle. Jim Amy, speaking for Ogilvie’s son Darrel, was next followed by longtime friends Jim Boudreau, and Judy Cave.

Politically, Ogilvie was remembered by Coun. Albert Hoglund, who served 20 years on Council with him and by Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett, who called Ogilvie a role model.
