James Roy Wargovcsik, 1951-2018. (via Kamloops Funeral Home)

On Saturday, Dec. 29, 2018, James Roy Wargovcsik,  passed away peacefully at age 67.

Jim was born on June 4, 1951, in Oliver, B.C. On March 13, 1971, he married Shirley Hebig. They raised two children, Karen Elaine Wargovcsik and Jason Joseph Wargovcsik.

Jim is survived by his wife Shirley, their two children and four grandchildren, Jeremy, Kyle, Dayton and Leah. Along with his two brothers Florian (Joanne) and Brian (Debbie) and sister Lynn. Jim was predeceased by his father Florian Sr., mother Gwendolyn and sister Julia.

Jim was a long time heavy equipment operator and worked for several companies in the Kamloops area where he resided. He retired in 2011. Jim liked to fish and hunt and enjoyed ‘monkeywrenching.’ Christmas was one of his favourite times of year because it was such a joy for him to spend it with family. ‘The more the merrier’.

Jim will be remembered by his family and friends for being such a kind and gentle soul who was always willing to help others.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Cancer Clinic in Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops.

No service by request, however, there will be a celebration of life in June 2019.
