Jim Marshall, the strongest link in our family chain, passed away peacefully on July 30th at the age of 65 with his family by his side. Left with heavy hearts and cherished memories are his wife of 34 years, Cindy, son Benjamin (Melissa) and grandchildren Alexis and Anthony, son Dustin (Alissa), sister Diane Tarry (Bob) of Chase, brother and best friend Harry (Monica) of Parksville, and many nieces and nephews and their families and many long time friends. Jim is predeceased by his mom Betty (1985), his dad Charles (2001), and his sister Clare (2014). Jim also had a second family, his coworkers at Aspen Planer in both Merritt and Vancouver. He was very dedicated to his work and was respected and trusted to make the right choices. Jim’s life revolved around family; he was always there for all of us. Jim found his real calling as the best Grampa to our two beautiful grandchildren, Alexis and Anthony. He would have moved a mountain for them. They were the light in his eyes and the smile in his heart while swimming at the Shuswap, skiing at Sun Peaks and being their number one fan at all of their events. A memorial service will be held at the Merritt Civic Centre on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 11am. In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in Jim’s name would be greatly appreciated. In life we loved you dearly, In loss we do the same. It breaks our hearts to see you go, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you The day you left our home. You leave us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as we heal one by one, The chain will link again Rest In Peace our sweet man.
