In Memoriam

James (Jim) Edward Hynes, 74, died at his home in St Catherines on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

Born April 21, 1943 in Montreal, Quebec, he was the son of the late Margaret Jean Hynes and Edward James Hynes. He is survived by his sister, Judith Hebert; his two sons, Jeff Hynes (Shannon) and John Hynes (Trudie) and their mother, Marilyn Courtney; and his four grandchildren Emily, William, Matthew, and Henry.

Jim was a thoughtful and kind-hearted man. When his boys were growing up, Jim enjoyed time at Healey Lake, expanding and puttering around the family cottage, visiting with friends and reading for long stretches while lounging in the boat. He was an entrepreneur with fashion and menswear retail properties in Parry Sound and the Niagara region during the 1970s and 1980s. More recently he favoured time at the Loyal Order of Moose, where he was happy nursing a beer, chatting about the ball game or the latest news.

Family and friends whose lives Jim touched are invited to a celebration of his life at his son Jeff's home (105 Sandringham Drive, Barrie, ON) on Friday, June 2 from 6:00 to 8:00pm.
