It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jim Beatty on October 4, 2018 at the age of 58. Predeceased by his parents, Earl (1977) and Pat (Frances) (2015). Beloved brother of Paul Beatty of White Rock, BC and Joan Ament (David) of Waterdown. Uncle Jim will be greatly missed by Chelsea, Josh (Angela), Josie (Ben), Maddy, James and Hannah.
Jim was a fighter to the very end. He battled leukemia and then other cancers. He beat the odds for more than 22 years after his bone marrow transplant from Paul on Oct. 5, 1995.
Sincere thanks to the many doctors and nurses that treated and cared for Jim over the years; most recently, to the staff at St. Joe’s, the Jurvinski Innovation Tower, Level 4 for their compassion and care; and to Pastor Peter whose visits meant so much to Jim.
A private interment will take place. A celebration of Jim’s life will occur at a later date.
In Jim’s memory, donations to the Terry Fox Foundation would be appreciated. On-line condolences can be left at www.donaldvbrown.ca
