James Charles Omand

August 22, 1936 – January 21, 2015

The family of James Charles Omand, retired mechanical engineer in the pulp and paper industry, is sad to announce his death following a short battle with cancer. Jim was predeceased by his wife Jackie and son Michael. He is survived by his wife Gloria Daly and their children: Nancy, Shawn, Dan, Gordon, Angela, Lynida, Dave, Klaig, Leanne, Jaason, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and sister Ruth. Jim was a volunteer with the Boy Scouts of Canada for many years, and treasurer/secretary with the Cowichan Valley Trap and Skeet Club for over twelve years. His greatest joys were his yearly moose hunt in McKenzie BC, cod fishing and the great outdoors. We will all miss his wisdom, wit and hearty laugh. If you care to make a donation to a charity on his behalf, please consider the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

The memorial gathering will be held at the Travelodge Silver Bridge Inn, Trans Canada Hwy in Duncan, BC on Thursday, January 29th from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.
