Munro, James Sellar
born on December 17, 1917 in Dunbeath, Scotland to Robert James and Helen Bruce Munro. “Jim” is predeceased by his parents, Robert and Helen Munro, his first wife Eileen and sister Hellen. He is survived by his very special friend Kathleen McPeake, son Gary (Shelley), daughter Marlene (Roger) Manson and two special grandchildren Carly and Ali, as well as, numerous nephews and nieces. He is also survived by brother Robert (Doris) Munro and sister Jean (Jack) McCrae. Jim led a varied life. Born in “Ivy Cottage” to a baker, Jim immigrated to New Westminster with his family at an early age, where he spent his youth. White Rock, Honey Moon Bay, Grantham’s Landing and Gibsons were also called home at various times in Jim’s life. Always one to get involved Jim served as choir leader and elder at the First Presbyterian Church in New Westminster and president of the Old Age Pensioners Society in Gibsons. Ever proud of his Scottish roots Jim also was active as president of the Caithness Society and would jump at the chance to wear his kilt and deliver the “Toast To The Haggis” at Robbie Burns night. Jim was a WWII Veteran, a long standing member of the Royal Canadian Legion branch #256, a member of the Nanaimo Naval Association and of course an avid fisherman who would never pass up the chance to catch “The Big One”. Jim will be dearly missed by family and friends. A memorial service was held on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 to honour Jim’s life.
