Vint: James Edward of Kelowna passed away peacefully on August 4, 2016 in Sun Pointe Village at the age of 92 years. Jim was born in Kelowna on January 25, 1924, son of pioneer Glenmore orchardists James McFarlane Vint and Ethel Vint.
Jim is survived by his wife Josephine; three daughters – Laura Paterson, Jan Vint and Marj Vint; five grandchildren – Terry Ann Stevens, James Paterson, Corinna Mulyk, Marissa Hutchison and Kate Vint, as well as six great grandchildren. Jim was predeceased by his parents and his sister Jessie Vint.
Jim’s family is grateful for the many years they were able to share with him in the surroundings he loved, particularly camping and fishing around BC lakes and Vancouver Island, or anywhere that a good cup of coffee and tranquility could be found. Jim was always happiest when he was surrounded by family, close friends, and nature.
There will be a private burial at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, and a Celebration of Jim’s Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson Society British Columbia, Lymphoma Society of British Columbia or the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.firstmemorialfuneralkelowna.com, where updates on the Celebration of Life will also be shared as they become available.
