August 5, 1944 - January 26, 2023
Jim passed away in Sechelt Hospital on January 26, 2023 at the age of 78 after a short illness. He was born and raised in Trail, BC and moved to Vancouver to obtain his Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia. He spent his entire working career in the insurance industry, retiring as Vancouver Branch Manager of Canadian Northern Shield Insurance Company. He was a proud member of the Sunshine Coast Lions Club for over 15 years and spent many Saturdays hosting the Lions meat draw fundraiser. Jim was predeceased by his parents, Jean and Robert Ferguson; his nephew David Rees; and his brother-in-law Jim Rees. He will forever be lovingly remembered by his wife Debbie, sister Marg Rees, niece Catherine Rees and her husband Ross and sister-in-law Kathy Kennedy as well as other family members. He and his family are extremely grateful to Dr. Suzanne Walter for her compassionate care over the years, to the wonderful VCH home care team (you know who you are) and to the excellent Sechelt Hospital staff. Jim loved dogs, cheap white wine, bad Westerns, a good steak and good friends. No service by request. When you think of Jim, smile - he would like that.
