Passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 7, 2018. Jim was born in Toronto, Ontario on November 28, 1952, the second of two children to Jean and Woodrow Wilson. While attending high school in North York, Jim met the love of his life, Sandy Wilson. Together they moved to Whitehorse, Yukon where they laid roots and raised a family.
Loving husband to the late Sandy. Wonderful father to Mike, Sam (Carlo) and Pat. Dear brother of Maureen (the late Walt), and brother-in-law of Charmaine (Sandy), Judy (Dean), and Jackie (Jack). Cherished uncle of Dan (Maya), Wes (Ashley) and Britt (Stefan), Dione, Jessica (Matt), and Adam (Amy), Lindsay and Maddy, Jade and Jordan. There are so many more relatives and friends in Whitehorse, Coe Hill and across the country who will feel his loss. Jim will be remembered for his contagious laugh, natural curiosity and love for his family.
