Jimmy passed peacefully after a long illness fought valiantly at home in Boston Bar but came to final rest in Hope Hospice care at the Fraser Canyon Hospital. Many thanks to Dr. Greggain and staff for their wonderful care of Jimmy. Jimmy is predeceased by his parents and sister Debbie. He leaves behind a wife, Nancy Carmichael (Boston Bar), son Jessie, stepson Colin (Calgary), sister Wendy Clarke (Peachland) and many nieces and nephews.

Jimmy also worked part time during the winter for Emil Anderson keeping the Canyon open and generously volunteered his time helping out his community with many projects.
