Surrounded by the love of his family, Jim Giacinti passed away peacefully in his 67th year on November 9, 2018, after a long and hard fought battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Beloved husband of Janelle. Wonderful father to Jillian, Jeralee (Jack), and Jolene (Lachlan), and grandfather to Lucas and Hannah. Brother to Mary Jo, Chris, Jonathan (predeceased), Elizabeth, Lois, and Jerry. Uncle and cousin to many. Jim loved his furry friends, especially his buddy “Cammie”. A quiet man, Jim bravely faced the challenges that life dealt him with courage, and a smile that would light up the room. We would like to thank the many people who have supported him in his journey over the years, including Dr. W. Oczkowski, the staff of Wentworth Lodge, and Cindy. Your help will never be forgotten. As would be Jim’s wishes, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hamilton Burlington SPCA would be appreciated.

“If there ever comes a day where we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” ~ A. A. Milne
Please shed no tears.

    Dear Giacinti Family,
    I had not seen Jim around the neighbourhood for a long time so was shocked he passed away after having his disease for such a long time. Bless you for your incredible strength in keeping the family and house going all these years. I hope you are finding joy with your girls and your grandchildren and share the good memories with them. Take care, Juliane Gruneberg

    I remember Jim’s singular wit that could put a smile on your face. He showed this when he offered his commentary on the play of his family members as they attempted to complete a round of golf at Chedoke. I remember his quiet
    brilliance in something as simple as solving a renovation problem for Lois and I. But most of all I remember his courage to keep on taking another step for as long as he was able. My condolences to the Giacinti family.
