April 17, 1930 – June 3, 2013
James (Jim) Ormiston Bisset
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James Ormiston Bisset. James passed away peacefully in the early hours of June 3, 2013 with his family by his side.
Predeceased by his son Danny and daughters-in-law Terry (Lee) and Donna (Larry); Jim is survived by his wife of 60 years, Jane, sons Lee and Larry; granddaughters Jamie and Robyn; sisters Margaret (Rob) Wardrop, Rita Jeffrey, brother Danny (Peggy) and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Jim was followed in passing by his sister Norma (Bill) Grieve a few hours later in their hometown in Scotland.
Jim and Jane moved from Scotland to Canada in 1953, two weeks after being married. He spent most of his life living in Kitimat, BC and moved to Coldstream in 1984. As a trained carpenter, Jim’s philosophy was “If you were making it out of wood, you can do anything” much to the dismay of husbands of the women in Jim’s life. There was never a project that could not be tackled and Jim (Mr. B to most) was always in the midst of it all.
