James Winstone

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of James Winstone on Saturday, September 5, 2015, due to complications following heart surgery at the age of 65. When he left, Jim was surrounded by love, with his wife and daughters at his side.

He is predeceased by his parents Jim and Elma. Jim is survived by his loving wife Margaret, his daughters Teresa, Kristy (Corey) Bramall; grandchildren Ashley, Dale, Teagan and Molly; sister Mary (Ron) Young; nieces and nephews Lisa, Reese, Sam, Myana and Hayley.

In his younger years, Jim worked as a sign painter. However, he dedicated the majority of his professional years to the APD Sawmill, and was there until his retirement in 2010. He was an active man who will always be known as a “gentle giant”. Jim loved being in the outdoors, was incredibly artistic, could fix anything and enjoyed his farm, but above and beyond, loved his family.

According to Jim’s wishes, there will be no formal service. The family gratefully declines flowers, but condolences and memories are gladly accepted at www.chapelofmemories.ca. Donations in Jim’s memory may be made to Ty Watson Foundation, 3088 3rd Avenue, Port Alberni, BC, V9Y 2A5.
