Jim, who grew up in Victoria BC moved to Port Alberni in 1958 and opened the Dairy Queen with his father, he will be remembered by many as the man who put the curl on top of their ice cream. Jim who loved the ocean and boats was an avid fisherman and he once considered a career in the Navy. After retiring in 1988, he moved to Parksville BC where he met and married Mabel, his soulmate and fishing partner of 23 years. Jim who developed a keen interest and knowledge of computers also enjoyed camping and spending time with family and friends.
