Condolence From: Ernie and Margo Armstrong
Condolence: We were saddened to learn of Jim's passing today. I coached Jim at Eastern Commerce and on the Ontario Provincial team. He was a tremendously talented player and just a really likeable person. His team-mates and coaches loved his sly sense of humour and his easy-going style. Our deepest sympathy to Jim's family and friends.
