(William) James Wellmer

January 19, 1965 – March 11, 2021
It is with great sadness we announce (William) James Wellmer passed away March 11, 2021. Born Jan. 19, 1965 in Alberta, he was raised by his father Will alongside his sister Kimberly.
Growing up James enjoyed time spent with his cousins and working on his uncle’s farm every summer. He lived his adult life in Nanaimo, BC where he was known and loved by many.
He had a great love of baseball and a deep passion and talent for music and songwriting. He will remembered for his music, infectious smile, and larger than life personality, he was always willing to help a friend and wish them “peace and love”.
James leaves behind many family and friends who loved him a lot including parents Will and Alice, sister Kim, and many others. His legacy lives on in his daughters Marissa and Megan whom he loved with all his heart; his smile lives on in his granddaughter Scarlett.
James will be greatly missed, but we know he’s at peace. A celebration of life will happen at a later date.
