It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Jim at the age of 75, surrounded by family at the Woodstock Hospital. Loving father of Anthony (Laury), Jason (Allison), Jonathan and Esther. Cherished Opa of Alex, Ally, Darcy and Emily. He will be greatly missed by his companion Fan. Jim will be fondly remembered by his family and friends.
Jim immigrated from Holland in young adulthood to start a new life and became a successful farmer, entrepreneur and business man. A grand optimist, he was always on the look out for the next challenge or opportunity which kept him busy and was what he loved. Jim was a lover of animals of all shapes and sizes. He loved to talk and was always generous with his time and thoughts. Jim was a great friend and mentor to many, many people. We love you.
A private family service will be held at the Keith Ovington Funeral Home, 134 King Street, Burford, Ontario. As expressions of sympathy, donations in Jim's memory may be made to the Burford Agricultural Society. Keith Ovington 519-449-1112. www.keithovington.ca
