BISSET, James. Aug. 6th, 1920 – May 12th, 2011. Jim Bisset’s finally taking a day off after 90 years of hard work. He always played by the rules and was the most decent, honest guy anyone could ever meet. Just as he had an amazing work ethic, he was also able to take time to enjoy himself. A master shipwright, over the years he built a small fleet. To own a Bisset boat became a privilege. His friendship, generosity and wry sense of humour will be missed by his many friends and family. He’s got his boarding pass and is going where the fields are green, the thoroughbreds are fast, the women are beautiful, the stock market is always bullish, a man can get a decent rye & coke, and a couple of hundred board ft. of clear cedar can be bought at a good price. Jim, you were special.
Thanks to all the caregivers and doctors at Mission Memorial who gave him the attention and respect he deserved. In lieu of flowers donations could be made in Jim’s memory to the Salvation Army, a cause he always supported. A memorial will be held at a later date.
