Allan, Jimmy “Jim” Thomas

December 19, 1951 – September 5, 2022
at the age of 70 years:     

Jim passed peacefully on his own terms surrounded by family on Sept. 5, 2022. In typical fashion, he remained resilient, stubborn, and good-humored during his 10-year battle with Parkinson’s, joking and laughing till the end.

In life Jim never let a lack of education or manners hold him back; with only his abundant wits and charm he succeeded in everything he ever tried including business-owner, newsman, real-estate tycoon, fisherman, “farmer”, door-door fish salesman, and race-horse patron. When asked to describe himself, his first response was always “Pirate”.

He will be sorely missed by his three children, his wife, his best friend & brother Roddy, and the countless people his bright life touched in the Shuswap and Western Canada.
