James was born in Paisley, Scotland and moved to Vernon in 1976. A long standing member of the Vernon Yacht Club and a member of numerous service clubs, Jimmy loved life – he loved laughing and having fun.

He was a businessman, who started Apple Valley Automotive, GEL Automotive, and Claire Glass Ltd. – where he left his mark with glass etching. Following these personal ventures, he was employed by the Vernon Subaru dealership and Vernon Hyundai. Jimmy was hardworking and dedicated to his clients and his craft.

Jimmy was a loving husband to Margaret, dedicated father to his two beautiful daughters, Claire and Rebecca, and wonderful grandfather to his grandsons, Owan and Arron, of whom he was extremely proud.
