Jim Cumming, born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada on Oct. 3, 1945, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Oct. 26, 2012.

Friday Harbor, Wash., had been his hometown since 1976.

His life was filled with great happiness on the day he and Judy were married on the day when his daughter Tracy was born, and again on the day that he gave Tracy’s hand in marriage to Kelby.

His happiness then increased beyond measure on the days his grandsons Ty and Jack were born.

Jim was an avid outdoorsman and also enjoyed competitive sports, coaching many of his daughter’s and grandsons’ teams. In December 2009, he bowled a perfect 300 game during league play, making him the first person to do so at Paradise Lanes in Friday Harbor, Wash.

A service will be arranged at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the organization that means the most to you.
