On Saturday, September 6, 2014, James Adam Milne passed away at home with his wife Debbie and sister Bobbi by his side. Jim was 61 years old. He was born on July 21, 1953 to Robert and Ellen Milne in Toronto, Ontario.
Jim truly loved life and he had many passions. He decided to move to BC as he was searching for a new adventure in his life. He loved to travel and went to many faraway places during his lifetime. He also had a great love for the mountains and lakes in the area and really enjoyed camping. Jim has always been a very independent spirit and liked doing things on his own. He was very good in school and was an outstanding student. He earned the honor of being the valedictorian in high school. Another great love of Jim’s was sailing and he spent many hours on the water enjoying the waves.
Jim and Debbie married in Toronto 22 years ago and made the trek west together. He leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife, Debbie; his mother Ellen Milne and his brothers and sisters, Bobbi (Marv), Elizabeth (Tim), Alex (Deb), Debbie and Rob (Leslie). Jim was predeceased by his father and one sister, Mary.
A special thanks to the Oncology Department for the care Jim received during his illness, to Dr. Tait for going above and beyond the call of duty and to all our friends for being by Debbie’s side throughout this difficult journey – so many wonderful people to thank.
