It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James Arthur Moore “Jim” on July 28th, 2019 at SLGH, after a short battle with cancer, at the age of 86. Jim was born
on the family homestead on Yankee Flats to J.G. Moore and Edna Linton. Jim spent his early years working alongside his father at the family sawmill on Yankee Flats. After a long day working there was always time for hockey. The Moore homestead was a common gathering place to play hockey or have a moccasin dance. All on homemade ice they maintained in their spare time. Jim had a long career as an independent
logging contractor. When it came time for retirement, he spent his time snowmobiling or quadding. Even before the first snowflake fell Jim was preparing for each season. His commitment to his passion encouraged
the construction of Owls Head cabin. Giving outdoor enthusiasts a place to meet, rest and play.
Jim is survived by his children; Glenn, Danny (Linda), Darla, Debbie (Andrew); his sister Louise (Mel), Grandchildren; Mackenzie (Lisa), Brittany (Bernie), Melissa (Pieter), Danica (Bobby), Jacob (Nadine), Jody (Michael), Danny (Jazmin), Austin and Liam, Great grandchildren; Maddison and Taylor (Mackenzie), Sophia (Brittany), Olivia (Melissa) and Dawson (Jake), Nieces Penni (Kim) and Cindi (Gord), also Jim’s companion Francis Laws and of course his faithful feline friend JimBob.
The family would also like to thank the community care nursing team and Dr Heunis, Dr Skubiak and Dr Venter. Also many thanks to the amazing nursing staff at SLGH.

  2. We are very sad to hear of Jim’s passing, Keith worked for him for many years, always stopped into see him, every time we were in Salmon Arm

  3. I am saddened to read of Jim’s passing. I got to know Jim through servicing his vehicles at Jacobson Ford where we became good friends with a common interest, sledding. Jim was one of a kind, a true, honest gentleman in every sense of the word. Many great sledding memories on Owl Head, Queest and the Bugaboos. My condolences to Jim’s family, friends and associates,
    Cherish the many great memories of a life well lived. You will be missed!
    RIP Jim!!

  4. So sad to hear of Jim’s passing…..our thoughts are with Glenn, Danny, Darla, Debbie and their families, along with Louise and family. Our family spent many wonderful years and memories with the Moore family and I know that Jim & Dad (Herbie) will now be telling ALL their stories together once again. We know that Mom (Frances) is missing his company and sharing Saturday Night Hockey together.
    May the fondest of your memories help you through this difficult time.
    Lovingly remembered
    Joanne (nee Hare) and Bill Laws
