James Bolton

August 13, 1946 — September 18, 2018

Peacefully with all his family by his side, Jim passed away on September 18th 2018 at the age of 72 years.

James Weston Bolton was born August 13, 1946 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Jim was a very loving, caring, and generous husband, father, grandfather and friend. His wife, three children and grandchildren meant the world to him. He loved to watch his kids and grandkids grow; cheering them on in sports and life. He was a father who taught his children the values of life and hard work. He leaves behind his high school sweetheart Mary, wife of 50 years; daughter Theresa (Daryl Doubleday); sons James (Alana) and Daniel (Jenna); grandchildren Kate, Presley, Hannah, Clark, Weston, and one more grandchild on the way, and step-grandchildren, Gattlin, Alex and Lucas.

At a very young age, Jim started working for his dad at a service station. At the age of 27, Jim bought his first service station, and continued in the service field until his retirement in 2010.

Jim will be remembered for his love for his family and his great sense of humour. Anyone who knows Jim would appreciate his need for organizing, efficiency, and order, all leading to his favourite hobby of washing his already spotless car whether it needed to be or not.

Memorial Service will be held on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Good Shepherd Catholic Church with Fr. Gerald Langevin officiating.
