James Mckinley

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jim McKinley. Jim was born at home at the Diamond (Ladysmith) June 14, 1937, to Lillie and James McKinley. He was predeceased by his sisters Honey Gilson and Sal Brown. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Wendy, son Paul, daughter Paula (Dan), grandkids Sarah (Mike) and Zac (Caitlin) and grand puppies Lacy, Zook and Ginger. Jim was employed by Canada Post until his retirement in 1990. Jim was an active member of the Loyal Order of Moose, Free Mason Doric Lodge 18, OES Crescent Chapter #10, and OAP.
We would like to thank the ER, ICU, and Palliative Care Staff at NRGH for the excellent care. Jim will be lovingly missed. Raise a glass of Irish whiskey in his honour. May he rest in peace. Celebration of life will be held on February 29, 2020 at 2:00 pm at the Cavallotti Hall. 2060 E. Wellington Rd. Nanaimo, BC. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Moose Charities, 155 S N International Dr. Mooseheart, IL 60539 USA or the NRGH Palliative Care Unit.
