Thomas James Alexander (Jim)
June 19, 1947 – June 28, 2009
Jim was born in Princeton, BC on June 19, 1947 to Edith & Matthew Farrell and passed away on June 28th, 2009 at Campbell River Hospital after a battle with cancer. Jim’s life was spent in Campbell River. After graduation from Campbell River Senior Secondary School in 1967, he attended Technical School, achieving his heavy duty and automotive tickets. This added to his life long passion and hobby of Antique Cars and Hot Rods.
Jim will be sadly missed by wife Maryanne, son Sean, sister Kathey Pierce and family, in-law’s Anne and Ken Herlinveaux, and many relatives and close friends. Jim was a member of several car clubs, including the North Island Cruisers. He loved camping and hanging out with his faithful companion Tucker.
Jim was immensely proud of his son Sean, who shares his passion for mechanics and cars.
