James “Jim” OWEN

James “Jim” E. Owen

Born in Ocean Falls, B.C., November 9, 1949.

Past away peacefully, January 22, 2013.

Predeceeded by parents, Jack and Beatha and younger sister, “Sam” Mary-Jane. Survived by brothers Dave (Marilyn) of Campbell River and Terry of Gibsons, B.C., sister, Gwen of Chemainus as well as nieces; Debbie (Tim), Deanna (Rod), “Bobbie” (Darren) and nephew Kelly.

During his 63 years in Ocean Falls, he was always available to provide transportation and hospitality to those who returned for a second look since their exodus in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Jim was an avid fisherman and enjoyed the outdoors until his health deteriorated.

When a true “Rain Person” dies, the skies open up and the rains come down. – This happened in Ocean Falls the evening he died.

There will be a celebration of his life in the near future. Instead of flowers, donations could be made to the Diabetes Association or a charity or choice.
