WELSH, James Keith Phd

James Keith Welsh, Phd
1940 to 2017

Jim passed away in the early hours of July 27 leaving behind his wife Gisela, daughter Johanna (Bob) and three grandchildren, sister Jane (Ken) and family.

Jim’s life was one of many interests and skills, all of which he shared readily with everyone. He enjoyed music, singing was a big part of his life in later years. Folk dancing was a hobby he enjoyed, particularly to live music in many countries of the world.

He often quoted the closing words of the ‘Red Green Show’ – “If the women don’t find you handsome, they better find you handy.” Jim was handy, there was nothing he could not fix.

As a radio amateur, he enjoyed the Salt Spring Island club. His helpful nature will be missed by many.
Many thanks to Dr. Reznick and the nursing staff at Lady Minto Hospital.

A Celebration of Life to take place August 27, 1-4pm at 290 Southbank Drive, Salt Spring Island.

Online condolences to be made at:  250-537-1022
