With gentle relief, the family of JAMES \”JIM\” ALBERT MOCH, sadly announce his passing on Saturday, October 19th at the age of 74 years. Jim is survived by his wife, Irene of 54 years and sons Trevor (Lisa) and Jason (Tina) and granddaughters Hazel, Zuri and Isla. Also surviving are brothers, Bob (Phyllis), Garry (Gladys), sister Lynn Steedsman (Dave, deceased), sister in law, Phyllis Moch, numerous nieces and nephews and special friends, Art and Carol Ann Bedster. He was predeceased by his parents Ruth and Henry, brothers Richard and Ralph Moch and Ray and Ken Eiler. Jim was born in Maple Creek, SK and came to Lethbridge at an early age and was a proud resident of Southern Alberta all his life. He trained as a Power Engineer while at Lethbridge Power Plant, served as Supt. of Lethbridge Centre and retired as Supt. of Bldgs. and Grounds at the U of L. He was passionate about wood and proficient at cabinet making and has left many examples of his work for his family to enjoy. Jim possessed a quiet gentle nature and was very proud of his boys and their families. He enjoyed early retirement and travelled some to warmer climes and particularly enjoyed travelling to Arizona and all the friendships that developed there. While he struggled in recent years with dementia he still retained his quiet gentle nature. For the last four years he enjoyed the friendship of his Legacy Lodge family, both residents and staff who provided for his every need. Rest easy Jim, we will miss you. As a memorial to Jim, find a friend or relative, take a walk in nature and raise a toast to a life that was, and a memory that will live on with all of us. Cremation has taken place. A Service of Remembrance will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB on Friday, October 24th, 2014 at 2:00 P.M. with reverend Andrew Horne officiating. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimers Society.
