Broom JimBROOM, James Crosbie 'Jim' - Passed away peacefully at Algonquin Grace Hospice on Sunday, March 5, 2017 with his beloved wife Nancy at his side.

His three sons Gordon, Alan and Duncan, and his granddaughter Abbie, were all able to spend time with him and say their goodbyes in the preceding time, as well as many family and friends.

Back in 2002 Jim fulfilled a lifelong dream and retired to Huntsville, where he spent 14 wonderful years on the shores of Chub Lake in his beloved cottage with Nancy. He was forever tinkering on projects in his basement or the garage, or perhaps out working on the road crew with his trusty ‘mule’. He had a lifelong passion with airplanes, and he and Nancy took many road trips to explore obscure Aviation Museums around the country.

Nancy and the family would like to sincerely thank the Algonquin Grace Hospice for the compassion and incredible care they provided Jim in the nine days he was there. The Grace is truly a wonderful facility filled with beautiful, thoughtful staff and volunteers, and we were so very lucky that it was available to us through such a difficult time. We will never forget your help.

A private family service will be held.

In lieu of flowers the family is requesting that memorial donations be made in Jim’s name to the Melanoma Network of Canada or via one of the gifts on the wish list of the Algonquin Grace Hospice.
