Quee, James Fulton
Jim died peacefully on December 14, 2009 following a long battle with bladder cancer. He was born in Vancouver to Henderson and Violet Quee on April 29, 1932. Jim spent his childhood in Calgary, Alberta before joining the Royal Canadian Navy for a four-year term. He then settled in Vancouver where he worked for B.C. Hydro for many years, finishing his career with the Education and Licensing Department of the B.C. Safety Engineering Services Gas Safety Branch. Retiring in 1994, Jim spent the past 15 years living in Nanaimo. He leaves behind his sister Doreen (Dick); brother Bill (Kathy); sister Marianne; his six children: Sharon (Sue), Leslie (Mark), Linda (Doug), Michael (Rosemarie), Colleen (Rob), and Brian (Gina); sixteen grandchildren; his companion Sherry; and his canine first mate Willy. Jim will be remembered for his love of the sea and his wholehearted enjoyment of life. The family would like to express their appreciation to Jim’s Nanaimo friends who supported him throughout his illness. We also wish to thank Jim’s many healthcare team members who provided excellent care to him. A celebration of Jim’s life will take place on Saturday, January 2, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at the Deep Cove Yacht Club located at 4420 Gallant Avenue, North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, a donation to your favourite charity, in Jim’s name, would be appreciated.
