James Stewart McAlpine

It is with immense sadness we announce the loss of an amazing husband, father and friend of Williams Lake, after his courageous battle against cancer.

Left with a hole in their hearts and lives are wife Debbie, sons Travis (Nicole) and Kevin (Lisa), his much loved and adored grandchildren, Lila-Dawn, Kara-Lynn and Jayden-James, his sisters Brenda (Tom) McGladrey of Nanaimo and Verlaine (Don) Fitzpatrick of Williams Lake. Jim will also be sadly missed by numerous other family and friends Canada wide. There are so many of us that mourn the passing of this gentle soul.

James was predeceased by his parents and nephew.

His presence in our lives has been a gift we will always be grateful for. We will miss his smile, humour, loyalty, loving touch and one of the most positive and brave spirits we will ever have had the pleasure to know.

We would like to extend deepest appreciation to our family and friends for your incredible love, support, prayers and acts of kindness.

A celebration of life will be held Sunday, July 15, 2012 at McKinnon Hall downstairs in the St. Andrews United Church in Williams Lake at 1:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made directly to the MS Society of Canada or the B.C. Children’s Hospital.
