It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jim Lewis, at the age of 77 years, after a long and courageous struggle with prostate cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Sandra, son Mike (Hope) of Ottawa and daughter Susanne (Jeff) Mohler of Edmonton, and grandchildren Sara, Jim, Maryanne, Matthew, Jonathan and Scott. He leaves to mourn as well his brothers Donald (Emma) of Ottawa, Eugene (Marilyn) of Whitby, and brother-in-law, Norman Bartholomew of Cape Breton, N.S. He was predeceased by his sister Shirley Bartholomew.
Jim graduated from Dalhousie Law School in 1959 and spent the next 33 years practicing law at Emery Jamieson. In 1993 he was appointed to the Court of Queen’s Bench and retired in 2008. He was an avid woodworker, loved tennis, and enjoyed camping with his grandchildren.
The family wishes to thank Dr.Voldeng and the wonderful caregivers at Norwood Palliative Unit.
