Posted: January 23rd, 2013

James Francis (Jim) Sheridan passed away peacefully in his 99th year at the Sunnyside Care Centre on 19th January 2013.

He leaves his son Don with wife Debbie, daughters Vi and Moira with husband Tim and sons Caolan, Rory and Ian. The family thank all Jim’s caregivers especially the amazing, kind and thoughtful staff at the Sunnyside Care Home, Dr. W. Ruzycki and Karen. Profound thanks to Margaret Smith and Russ Harms for years of kindness, and to the Medicine Hat aviation community who in countless ways enriched his life.
