A tribute to the man, wild child, VP, Mr. Jamaica, mentor, athlete, track & soccer coach, motorcycle lover, gardener, son, brother, husband, father & grandfather.
Jim grew up on a small farm in Richmond BC where he picked blueberries with his siblings to help make ends meet.
He had a long and substantial travel career working his way up to VP of Operations & Product Development at Air Canada Vacations.
Jim was highly respected by his coworkers, associates, and friends in the travel industry. He was smart, interesting, always ready for a good time and definitely a bit of a character whose exploits could engender much amusement and laughter. He truly was nature’s gentleman and will be sorely missed by everyone who had the good fortune to know him.
Jim had the kindest soul, the hardest work ethic, the most discipline, the wittiest sense of humour and the greatest love for the people in his life. ~ We’ll kick it into high gear for you always.
He took his last flight on Saturday July 11th, surrounded by his wife Diane Tremblay, twin daughters Sarah & Michelle Proctor, son in law Mark Brown, brothers Gary & Brian Proctor and his sisters in law. He was 72 years old.
You will forever be our sunshine, our North Star and the wind in our sails. We love you.
