James was born in Newmarket, Ontario and lived in Bradford, Ontario during his childhood. Following his marriage to Bunny they resided in Parry Sound, Brooklin, Lindsay and Kingston, Ontario.
James was a musician, accountant, and a gentleman. He played piano with his brothers in a band for many years and participated in other bands in the Lindsay area. Following their move to Lindsay where James operated the Credit Bureau, he became very active in the Lindsay Chamber of Commerce.
During this time James wanted to do more, so he began his studies for a Chartered Accountant as a mature student, graduating 5 years later and later becoming a lifetime member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario. James then moved the family to Kingston, Ontario where he became the accountant for Brookside Prices Dairy, then shortly opened his own private practice.
James will be remembered fondly for his easy outgoing approach and the help and guidance he provided many businesses in the Kingston area.
The family wishes to extend its sincere gratitude to the loving caregivers in the Trillium Care Community.
