James Stobie

February 23, 1935 - January 19, 2018


It is with great sadness that the family of Jim Stobie, age 82 of Victoria BC announces his passing on January 19, 2018. He died surrounded by loved ones at Victoria General Hospital.

He will be lovingly remembered by his son Rod (Stella) and his daughter Roanne (Jose) as well as his grandchildren Jordan, Reilly, Hannah and Thomas. Jimmy will also be lovingly remembered by his remaining extended family and countless friends.

Jim was born February 23, 1935 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was pre-deceased by his parents James and Alice and his sisters, Edna, Kathleen and Doreen.

Jim had a long and varied career. He served 5 years in the Royal Canadian Navy, spent countless years working on the railroad and later worked as a Safety Officer for both B.C. Hydro Railway and the Ministry of Forests.

Jim was a member of the Masonic Lodge for over 50 years and a proud member of the Gizeh Shrine. He was also a long-time member of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He enjoyed spending his time volunteering, gardening, cooking, golfing, watching hockey and spending time with friends and family.

A Celebration of Life will be held in his honour on February 23, 2018 at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 292 – 411 Gorge Road East, Victoria BC, from 2pm – 4pm. All are welcome.

The family would like to thank the staff at Save On Foods #977 and the staff at Victoria General Hospital for their kindness and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Gizeh Shriners of BC & Yukon (Children’s fund) or to B.C. Children’s Hospital
