November 15, 1958 – April 27, 2023

Our hearts are broken with the sudden passing of Jim.

Born in Kamsack, SK his family moved to Winnipeg when he was a young boy and settled in Elmwood where he made many lifelong friends.

A hard worker all his life, he retired from the City of Winnipeg in 2014 with over 33 years of service. A new chapter, he married Pat that October. Busy as always, he took a part-time job at Notre Dame Arena until March 2023

Jim’s passion was his Triumph motorcycle and riding with his buddies. Collecting Hot Wheels as a hobby brought him much joy. A loyal friend who always extended a helping hand.

Predeceased by parents, Herb and Anne and brother David (Anita).

Survived by former spouse and special friend Pat, stepdaughter Melanie Bernas, cousin/friend Bryan Yerex (Elsie) and many friends and relatives.

A Celebration of Life will be held May 20 at the St. James Legion from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 pm. Please bring memories to share. In lieu of flowers: Ride for Dad or War Amps.

You left this world but not my heart

- Love Pat
