It is with great sadness that our family announces the peaceful passing of our husband, father, and Gigi, James (Jim), at his home on May 27th, 2023, at the age of 79.
He leaves to mourn his wife of 57 years, Vivian, and his children, David (Tanice), Cathy (Carl), and Donna (Miles). Gigi will also be remembered by his precious grandchildren, Deneika (Jamie), Ashton (Geneil), Alyssa, and Ethan. Uncle Jimmy will be remembered with love by his special niece, Claudia (Chris).
He was predeceased by his parents, Peter and Catherine; sisters Mary, Annie, and Victoria; and brother Bill.
The youngest of five children, Jim was born in Winnipeg on January 22, 1944, and grew up in Stonewall, MB. Jim married Vivian Kostjuk on June 19, 1965 and the couple raised their three children in Arborg, MB. Jim worked for the Manitoba Telephone System for 37 years as a Central Officeman, retiring in 1999.
Jim served on the Ardal-Geysir Lutheran Church council and volunteered on the Arborg and District Ambulance, Fire Department, and Arborg Hospital boards. One of Jim’s passions was serving on the Interlake Ducks Unlimited board for many years. Jim enjoyed hunting and his prize possession, a 1967 Dodge Charger, owned from new.
The family would like to thank his homecare workers with a special thanks to homecare nurse, Cynthia. Cynthia, your help that day will never be forgotten.
A celebration of life will be held at 1 PM, Saturday June 10, 2023, at the Ardal-Geysir Lutheran Church, 301 River Road in Arborg, MB. A private burial will happen following the service with a lunch reception to follow at the Ardal-Geysir Lutheran Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Ardal-Geysir Lutheran Church.
