With family at his side, Jim Argue passed away at East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook on Sunday, May 29,
2016 at 83 years of age.
Jim was born on May 27, 1933 in Montreal, Quebec and was raised in the small town of Greenfield Park, one of 5 children. He married Shirley Thomas in 1958 and they began their life together in Ville LeMoyne and then moved to Greenfield Park where they began to raise a family.
Jim was an avid golfer in his younger years. He loved to spend time watching and talking about hockey. Jim was a very loyal person. He loved Canada, Cranbrook and most of all his family. Jim spent many hours volunteering at East Kootenay Regional Hospital as a host.
Jim was happiest when the whole family was gathered together. He will be greatly missed by his wife Shirley,
daughter Sandra (Alex) and son Kevin (Helen). Jim was a proud grandfather and known as ‘Pa’ to Lindsay (Tony), Kevin,
Rebecca and Ethan. He was also a great grandfather to Jasper. Jim was a special uncle to 18 nieces and nephews.
Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff in the Intensive Care Unit at East Kootenay Regional Hospital who made Jim and his family very comfortable in his last days.
Our family has chosen to have a celebration of Jim’s life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donation in honour of Jim can be made to the Cranbrook Hospital Auxiliary, c/o 13
