James Jan Ganderton


James (Jimmy or Jim), passed away peacefully January 28 at home on Salt Spring Island.

Our wonderful father was a proud, generous and loving man who blessed us all with his kindness and devotion to family. He is survived by his sister Lynne and brother Fred, daughters Joni Ganderton (Steven Friedman), Diana Waterson (Brent), and son Mark Ganderton (Boni).

Jim was a wonderful grandfather, father and husband to Florence (Flo deceased) and was retired in Salt Spring, British Columbia.

James attended Royal Military College in Kingston, (Engineering) before serving as Flight Lieutenant in the RCAF and, later as a career Diplomat (Trade Commissioner for Canadian Federal Govt) stationed in Singapore, New Zealand and USA.

He and Flo were enthusiastic boaters for many years and he served as commodore of the Salt Spring Sailing Club.

Jim had a sharp wit, a cheeky spirit and sparkling personality. He was a true gentleman and had the biggest heart. He had endless time for family and life long friends and was happiest celebrating their lives. He had the deepest love for Flo (65 years married).

Finally, our Father and Mother will walk hand-in-hand again.

The family thanks Dr. Reznick and the wonderful staff at Heritage Place for their compassionate care.

A private family service is planned. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to ask that a donation be made to the charity of your choice in his name.
