Whipple, James


1954 - 2019

It is with deepest sympathies we announce the passing of


Mr. James “Jim” Whipple

passed away on June 10, 2019 at the age of 64.

He is survived by his wife Lucie Paluck, sons Colin (Clarissa Sookram), Jordan (Melissa Pike), and Rian; grandsons Carson and Caiden, granddaughter Lillyana; his mother Verna March, sister Gayle (Gordon Whyte), his brothers Gary (Carrie-Anne Shaver), David (Manon Thérien), and beloved nephews & nieces.


Jim was a memorable person, seldom forgotten by any whom he met in life. He had a talent for storytelling that was unforgettable. He was also known for his hard-working and proactive nature, leading by example rather than words. He was honest and frank, you always knew where you stood. He had a love for all things mechanical and always of the opinion that everything has “room for improvement”. As a very young boy, he was often found walking around with tools in-hand and a rag hanging out of his back pocket looking for things to repair, and quoted saying “Jimmy fick-it”. Needless to say, he will be deeply missed.

A memorial service will be held at the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall, 1316 Greber Blvd., Gatineau, Quebec J8V 3Z9 on Saturday, June 22, at 4 p.m.

For those who wish to do so, donations to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (www.heartandstroke.ca) or the charity of your choice would be appreciated. Your messages of condolence can be sent to www.cfo.coop.

I was saddened to see the notice of your brother Jim's passing.
I did not know him but from reading about him, I can tell that I would have liked him - and that he was very well loved by everyone who knew him.
Please accept my sympathy on your loss.
