Jimmy Parslow

PARSLOW, James Roy
Alias: Jimmy, Big Guy, Popps and Ampa

It is with great sadness we say goodbye to Jim who passed away April 3, 2013 at the age of 61 years. Jim was admired and loved by many and will never be forgotten by anyone whose path he crossed.

Jim is survived by his wife of 40 years Marian; his two sons that he was proud of and their wives who were like daughters to him: Christopher and Laura and Jason and Heather; Jim’s granddaughters: “Little Sweetie aka Best Little Girl aka Wonder Baby” Brenna and Miss Peanut (due Aug/13).

Jim enjoyed getting together with his siblings and their spouses where jokes and digs flew and cars were the subject of conversation. Jim leaves to mourn his passing, his mother Grace; siblings: Sandra (Ken) Yost, Kathy (Bruce) Douglas, Bill (Marilyn) and Glen Parslow; brother-in-law Ron (Bev) Darbyshire; numerous nieces and nephews. Jim will be missed by his CBC buddies and friends: Liz and Stuart Sargeant and Louise and Gerry Davison.

Jim was predeceased by his father George “Buzz.”
