February 20, 1931 – April 23, 2019
Holroyd, James “Jim” – passed on April 23rd, 2019 at the age of 88. Jim was born February 20, 1931 in Oldham, Lancashire, England to William and Hannah Holroyd, and immigrated to Canada in 1978. He was a self-employed painter and decorator. Jim always had a story to tell, a joke to be shared, and a cheek of a grin. Jim was the beloved husband to his late wife Barbara, and brother to late sibling Peter Holroyd. Jim is survived by his sister Rita Barnes, and his brother Denis Holroyd (Sheila). Loving father to Peter (Annette), Janet (Steven), Gillian (Chris). Proud grandfather to Paula, Cheryl, Matthew, Sherilyn, Cole, Chelsea, and Luke. Jim was a “chuffed” great-grandfather to Archie and Leila. Family and friends are invited to attend visitation between 6-8 p.m., Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas, followed shortly after by a gathering at a nearby Pub. Jim had a great passion for reading, so in lieu of flowers, donations to the Hamilton Public Library would be appreciated. Help Jim give the gift of reading to others.
