WALSH, James " Jim" Anthony
(Told you I wasn't feeling well)
'It is only with the heart the heart that one can see rightly what rightly; what is essential is invisible to the to the eye' - The Little Prince.
Always the optimist, believed in the goodness of others, a coach at business and at play, trusted all to do the right thing, married 34 wonderful years to his soul mate Heather (née ALEXANDER.) In his quiet times an avid reader, he loved a good biography, his heroes were Gandhi, St. Francis of Assisi, Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Muhammad Ali. Born in Two Mountains, moved into Montreal to attend Loyola College, upon graduation Jim joined Northern Electric in Personnel Management. In the early 70's he discovered sales, and spent the remainder of his career in sales and sales leadership positions. From '73 to '87 Jim held a variety of senior executive positions with Pitney Bowes of Canada. In late '87, Jim moved from the corporate world and began a new career in the general insurance business. His main objective was to have more time with his growing family of Heather and their three young boys, Matthew, Russell, and Graham. In his professional life, Jim's key to his success was his ability to identify, recruit, train and develop his staff to their maximum potential. He coached and convened local soccer and baseball, but his real passion was coaching rep hockey with the Markham Islanders and the Leaside Flames Hockey Clubs. He felt it was a privilege to work with the players and he enjoyed every minute of it. He will be greatly missed by his family and Friends. Jim is survived by Heather and their boys, his sister Ann WALSH of Two Mountains, special family friend Susan CHATTAWAY and many nephews and nieces. His sister Lin BEECROFT passed away in 1991. The family wants to thank Doctor BEZJAK and all the medical staff at Princess Margaret Hospital for their wonderful care since Jim was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2001. We also would like to thank all those responsible for Canada's great healthcare system. A very special thank you to Ted TOBIAS for his support, loving care and Friendship. On April 16th 2008, Jim peacefully passed on at home, surrounded by his sons, in the arms of his devoted wife. A celebration of Jim's life will take place in Markham at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, 8911 Woodbine Ave, 905-305-8508. Visitation on Sunday April 20th, 2pm-4 p.m. and 7pm-9 p.m. Service on Monday April 21st at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Princess Margaret Hospital would be greatly appreciated.
