James “Jim” Hamilton Mander

October 19th 1948 – April 3rd 2012

It is with great sadness that the family announces Jim’s departure to a safer harbour. Pre-deceased by his parents James and Marjorie, Jim is survived by his sisters Diana and Karen (Sepp) his son Clifford, his nieces Coreen and Kristin (Laurent) and his lifelong friend Bill. Jim enjoyed a special relationship with Coreen’s children Makiya, Matteo and Noah. Jim will also be missed by his friend Doreen and neighbor Karen.

Jim’s buddy Tic Toc was his constant companion, often tagging along in his backpack for bus trips from Craig Bay to town.

Jim was known by many local residents for his generosity and interest in their lives. The walls of his Craig Bay home were covered with his paintings and many collectables. His paintings told stories of his interests in the history of the BC coast.

Special thanks to Dr. Carswell, nurses Neva and Katy for their care and compassion.

A casual celebration to honour Jim will be held at Sutton’s Funeral Home, 502 South Dogwood Street, Campbell River, BC on Friday, April 13th, 2012 from 2pm – 5pm.
