Born in Burns Lake, lived at Pendleton Bay, Babine Lake until moving to Terrace in 1957. Jim spent many years in Tlell and retired to Hope (Laidlaw) in 2003.
Jim was very much loved and held a special place in the hearts of his nieces and nephews. Jim was one of a kind. He was never boring. He was immensely entertaining, loving, and generous. He is deeply missed.
Jim is survived by Heather Kolding and his brother and sisters, David (Lael), Margaret (Russ), Helen North (Brad) Joanne (Alan), Pamela and their families.
Predeceased by his parents,
Jim and Peggy McKeown.
