McPHERSON, James Charles
November 8, 1925 – October 11, 2014
Surrounded by his family, James McPherson passed away peacefully at the Abbotsford Hospital. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Dad always remained a Prairie boy at heart. In 1947, he began his career at the Insurers Advisory Organization where he met Patricia Muller whom he married in 1948. In 1972, they moved to North Vancouver and Dad recently moved to the Primrose Gardens in Abbotsford. He was loving, patient, kind, honourable, wise, and generous beyond words to his family and many charities. Dad loved his Scottish heritage, watching all kinds of sports, especially his kids and grandchildren, keeping up on the news, but nothing was more important to him than his family. He was a great parent and role model and we can only hope we are as good of a person as he was. Left to mourn his passing are his 4 children, 11 grandchildren, and 5 great – grandchildren. He was predeceased by our beloved Mother and after 14 years, they are finally together again.
We would like to thank the staff and residents at Primrose Gardens as well as the staff at the Abbotsford Hospital for their care and support. According to his wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday November 8, 2014 at 2:00 at Henderson’s Fraser Valley Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Children’s Hospital.
“Treasured in our hearts you’ll stay, until we meet again some day.”
