April 2, 1951 – May 22, 2020
Jim passed away as dignified as he lived every day, leaving the loves of his life, his wife of 47 years Jan, son Bronson (Marietta), daughter Carrie (Dan), and loving granddaughter Lara. Predeceased by his parents Carl and Violet Shanessy.
Jim worked at Welland County General Hospital (NHS) for 35 years and was loved and respected by many coworkers and the patients he helped care for. He was affectionately known as “The Cast Man”. Jim was also a proud lifelong member of the Welland Lions Club. He deeply enjoyed the charitable work his club accomplished in the community, his favourite being the guide dog program and Lions Camp Dorset (Kidney Dialysis Camp).
