Jenkins, James William

The Jenkins’ family are saddened to announce the passing of their father, James William Jenkins on January 26, 2010 in Nanaimo.

Born February 13, 1924 in Victoria. His career included the RCAF 1942 – 1974, working for the E&N Railway, and as a green-keeper for the Nanaimo Golf and Country Club. Jim loved Vancouver Island, and was a Nanaimo resident for the past 36 years.

Jim was very much a caring family man. He is predeceased by his daughter Janet (1998) and his beloved wife of 62 years, May in 2007. His family will miss him dearly: daughter Judi of Victoria; son Gordon and his wife Fran of Port McNeill; grandsons: James, Russ and Brady; and great-granddaughters: Hannah and Olivia.

Jim enjoyed many years of dancing, bridge and of course his passion, golf. Through these activities, Jim and May found an extended family of wonderful caring friends, to whom the family would like to express their thanks for the support, friendship and love they shared.

Friends and family are invited to bid farewell to Jim at a Memorial Service to be held February 13, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. The service will be held at First Memorial Funeral Services, 1720 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, B.C. Tea and coffee will be offered after the service.
