Obituary of James Edwin Telford

November 4, 1938 – March 27, 2022

It is with a broken heart that I let family and friends know that Jim has gone to heaven where there is no Alzheimer’s, only peace perfect peace.

I will miss Jim so much as we have been married for 62 years and have had a good life together, and I can’t really imagine life without him. 

In England, Jim worked down the coal mines for 12 years before we came to Canada and then 30 years at Stelco, working on the trains, he enjoyed this job till he retired, and then he was always busy with one project or another, he loved making things and was gifted so could do anything. There were many crafts he did, but paper tole was his favourite and in this art he excelled.

Jim was a good guy, often doing things for others, he cared a lot about the less fortunate, and enjoyed helping them.

Our children will miss their dad, Michael and Susan in Vancouver, Steven and Mary in Nova Scotia, Karen and David in Vancouver and Carol and our two grandsons Ryland and Jacob in Vancouver, my two brothers Colin Edwards in Hamilton and Allen Edwards in England will miss their kind of humour, Jim leaves 3 brothers George, Frank, and Jack, and one sister Mary in England and many other relatives and friends in Yorkshire and Australia.

Jim loved to travel, especially cruises, as one finished, he was ready to plan the next one, I am happy that we did this while he was well.

Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at Cheyne Presbyterian Church, 7 King St. W., Stoney Creek on Saturday, April 9, 2022 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
