It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father Jim Guy on November 11th at the Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary Alberta, at the age of 69. Jim is survived by his wife June, his three children Michelle (Colin), Kim and Jimmy and four step- children Charene (Alan), Regan (Christine) Lana (Bill) and Clint. He also leaves behind many grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Jim will also be missed and lovingly remembered by his niece Debbie, brothers David (Betty), Eugene (Sheila), Gerry (Marion), Larry (Lena), Wilfred (Marilyn), sisters Joan, Judy and Diane (Alex), sister-in laws, Joan, Mary and Merla and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. Jim was predeceased by his parents Claude & Rita, brothers Clarence (Chum), Tom , Frank, Kevin and Claude Jr. & Wilson. He was also predeceased by his brother-in law Peter Dicks and Gerald Rumbolt and his sister-in-law, Mamie. Jim was born in Corner Brook, NL into a very large family of 15 and was adored by all. He graduated high school and went on to work as a Fireman for many years before leaving for Alberta in 1982. Jim was a star athlete who was gifted both in hockey and baseball and throughout the years won countless awards for his dedication to the sport. He was inducted into the NL Baseball Hall of fame in 1990 and the NL Hockey Hall of fame in 2004, one of the very few to make both. His family, friends, teammates and community admired him and he created memories that will be cherished forever. Jim moved to Alberta in 1982 and spent over 20 years with his love, June Shaw. They were best friends and spent time going to rodeos, camping and enjoying life together. Jim (Dad) had a positive impact on so many people throughout his life. He will be missed by many and never forgotten by his family. We will cherish the beautiful memories he left us with. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a sports league in your community. The Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday November 16, 2016 at 10:00am in the Chapel at Mountain View Funeral Home (1605 100 Street SE, Calgary, AB). To express condolences, please visit
