JAMES BISSET

James (Jim) Ormiston Bisset

April 17 1930 – June 3 2013

It is with Great Sadness that we announce the passing of James Ormiston Bisset. James passed away peacefully in the early hours of June 3rd 2013 with his family by his side.

Predeceased by his son Danny and daughter in laws Terry (Lee) and Donna (Larry); Jim is survived by his wife of 60 years Jane, sons Lee and Larry; granddaughters Jamie and Robyn; Sisters Margaret (Rob) Wardrop, Rita Jeffrey, Brother Danny (Peggy) Bisset and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family & friends. Jim was followed in passing by his sister Norma (Bill) Grieve a few hours later in their hometown in Scotland.

Jim & Jane moved from Scotland to Canada in 1953, two weeks after being married. He spent most of his life living in Kitimat BC and moved to Coldstream in 1984. As a trained carpenter Jim’s philosophy was “if you were making it out of wood, you can do anything”.. much to the dismay of husbands of the women in Jim’s life. There was never a project that could not be tackled and Jim (Mr. B to most) was always in the midst of it all.

A celebration of life will be held on June 29th at Nancy and Mel’s from 1:00 – 4:00pm.

In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in Jim’s name to the Mcmurtry Baerg Cancer Center located in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
