James “Jim” Barnum

James "Jim" Barnum

July 1, 1932 – October 28, 2018
Jim passed away at the age of 86, surrounded by his beloved family, with the sound of their laughter and love for him ringing in his ears.

He had many titles over the years, but the one he was proudest of was Family Man. Husband, brother, dad, grandpa, friend; his family was the heart and soul of everything he did.

Left behind to mourn are his adored Grace, beloved wife of 61 years; his kids Sandy and Clive Nash, Clint and Sheryl Barnum, and Lisa Coffin, who loved him as much as he loved them. The grandchildren he was so very proud of David (Heidi), Ryan (Amanda), Sonya (Trevor), Michael (Jessica), Jamie (Michael), JoAnne (Luke), Nikki, and Shane (Raedel). And the 14 great-grandchildren who were his bragging rights and brought a smile to his face every time he saw them. Also, many extended family members and friends, who will miss him as dearly as we do.

Please feel welcome to join our celebration of his life 2:00 pm on Sunday, November 11, 2018, at Clayburn Village Schoolhouse 4315 Wright Street, Abbotsford.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
