From: Ron & Gail Keith
Relation: Former co-worker/friend

I worked quite closely with Jim for about ten years or so, when he was the General Manager at Quesnel Forest Products and I was the Office Manager/Chief Accountant, starting in May 1980. Previous to working with Jim, I worked with his wife Ruth at Ernst Forest Products, across the street from QFP. Although there were many trying times working in the forest industry then, Jim always had a great sense of humor and we shared many laughs. At times I played racquetball and ping pong with him, and even though he was 20 years older then I, he was a tough competitor. Jim was always an exciting person to work with. I learned a lot from him, on a variety of subjects, during our many long discussions. Family, dealing fairly and honestly with people, hard work and enjoying life, were all important to JIm. I enjoyed the times I spent with Jim. Gail and I are sorry for your loss.
