In Loving Memory ~
It is with extreme sadness we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of James Douglas Farney, after being air lifted to Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC. He was born in Elmvale, Ontario and resided in Sayward, BC.
Jim was predeceased by his father and mother Clarence and Agnes Farney.
Jim leaves behind his devoted and loving wife, Michele. He was a proud father of Nicole (Kurt Broekman) Lokken, Cassandra (Alex Scrimes) Pulles and son Cameron (Jaime) Farney. Jim cherished his grandchildren Blake and Tyler McKenzie, Sydney Lokken, Kensie and Chloe Pulles and Vincent Broekman.
He had two close brothers Bill (Jane) Farney, Bob (Pat) Farney and nephews and nieces, James, Janet, Ross, Nathan and Andrea. Also, sister-in-laws Patricia (Albert) Sartori, Shirley (Kris) Wsniewski and brother-in-law Loren (Jane) and nephews and nieces.
Jim’s career as a Millwright, in his later years took him to many places working in camp. His last place of work was the NWT’s where he made many friends from all over and he will be missed. He spent time off in camp taking pictures of the wildlife up there.
Jim’s greatest joys we’re spending time with his family, a menagerie of dogs, cats and rabbit.
A service of life will be held February 19th at his family home in Sayward, BC. It will be attended by family only due to covid.
A very special thank you to Spencer at Sutton Funeral Home in Campbell River, BC. Spencer has a wealth of knowledge and was such a valuable asset and support in our time of need. Also a special thank you to the surgeon, doctors and nurses that attended to Jim at the Campbell River and Royal Jubilee Hospitals.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal.
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
