1939 ~ 2014
Our loving husband, dad and papa, James Thomas Skorpack of Elkwater, AB., was born on September 11, 1939, in Willow Bunch, SK., and passed suddenly on February 4, 2014, in Medicine Hat. He left this world feeling love from near and far with family at his side. He is survived by his wife, Lynn; their daughters, Barb and Cheryl; his son, Mike as well as two brothers, Doug and Bob. He also leaves behind his grandgirls, grandchildren and one great- grandson. Jim always had a smile for everyone and a great sense of humour, which served him well in a house full of females. He treated everyone with respect and patience and had a heart of gold for both people and animals. His greatest accomplishment was his family. Jim liked to be outdoors and enjoyed his life in the country. Alkali was an active member of Medicine Hat Rifle and Revolver Club and enjoyed playing music, carpentry, baseball, hockey and being with his animals. Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of Jims life will be held out at the farm in May.
