THOMPSON, James Bryce

July 21, 1937 – March 27, 2016

Jim Thompson of Matsqui, BC passed away peacefully with his wife at his side in Abbotsford Regional Hospital. He was a gentle, kind man with a cheeky sense of humour who loved his family unconditionally. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 58 years, Marilyn; their children Cheryl (Ron) Matthews, Brad (Jodi) Thompson; his cherished grandchildren Andrew and Alana Matthews; Jaymie and Paige Thompson, as well as many dear relatives and friends. Jim will be remembered for his pride of farming and trucking, his passion for cycling and traveling, but mostly his huge love for his family. The family wishes to thank the medical staff at St. Paul’s Hospital, hematology department; Dr. Greyling, and Abbotsford Regional Hospital nurses and staff, who provided wonderful care and support. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donating blood. A Celebration of Jim’s life will take place at Matsqui Hall (33676A St. Olaf Avenue) on Sunday, April 10, 2016, 2:00 pm.
