Survived by his wife Bitten, 3 children and 7 grandchildren. “Jim was an ‘old school’ physician who made house calls and delivered his own babies, and he had great compassion and dedication to his patients. He was part of an amazing close-knit team at Group One Medical. He was also a student of the heavens — astronomy was Jim’s religion, and he continued his quest to study the universe and share his knowledge until his last day. He helped found the Kelowna chapter of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and was instrumental in establishing the Okanagan Observatory.”
