Jim will be missed. He was very kind and caring person; and he was amazing when it came to many projects (big and small) around Creekside Condos. This is very sad news. Sending our condolences to Jim’s family.

Relation: Friend at Creekside Village

Our deepest sympathies to all the family.. Lana and Maddy, we are so sorry. Your Dad and Grandpa was an amazing man. There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for you. He loved you dearly and was always talking about “His Maddy”.He was such a good friend. We will miss him dearly. Ron has lost a good friend as have I and I am sure going to miss those big hugs. We have so many good memories and will always remember him for his kind and giving nature

My sincere condolences to the family of Jim O’Neill. He was a really lovely person. Always cheerful and ready to help everybody. He really loved his family. I used to enjoy talking to him about his summer ‘quest for gold’. He will be sadly missed.

From: Cindy Beaton
Relation: Jim was my aunt's neighbour

Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Jim. I am so so sad to hear this news. My elderly aunt, Renee Griffiths, lived 2 doors down from Jim; she knew him for about 20 years. I just can’t say enough about Jim’s kindness, always willing to lend a hand whenever asked. He always inquired about Renee’s well-being without ever mentioning his own trials. He was a sweet, gentle, caring man who will be greatly missed. Jim was so helpful whenever I needed a tool or had any questions about the condo. The world desperately needs more people like him. You all must be truly proud to be related to him. I’m very sad.
