Jim Morrison

Obituary of Jim Morrison

It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Jim, surrounded by the love of his family at ARCH, on Saturday, October 29, 2022, at the age of 74. We take comfort in knowing he is now reunited with his beloved son, James Jr. “Jim” whom he missed dearly. Devoted husband and bestfriend of Kathy. Cherished father of Kathy Politano (Terry Miach) (Late Anthony Politano), Jean Morrison, Rob Headrick, Kristin Barker (Dan Barker) and the late Jim Morrison Jr. Adored Gramps of Kasey Politano (Vicki Stutter), late AJ Politano, Zackary Politano (Ella Morin), Ava Headrick, Spencer Headrick, and Piper Barker. Predeceased by his parents Garn Morrison and Margaret (Late Willi Gutschmann). Special Brother of Gayle Sarlo (Don), Harry Morrison (Judy), Nancy LePage (late Jerry), Tym Morrison (Marilyn), Hugh Morrison and Kent Morrison. Son-in-law of the late Walter (Elizabeth) and late Jean Bedryk. Brother-in-law of late Ron Fedak, late Judie Yanni and the late Gary Bedryk. He will be lovingly remembered by his many nieces and nephews.


Jim was a skilled trades man but especially enjoyed his career as an Industrial Sales Rep. He loved meeting new people and valued the many friendships and connections made over the years. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and was very proud to have achieved Master of the lodge twice. Jim had many interests, he enjoyed tinkering, working around the yard, his home on Blue Water Bay was his happy place. He was always ready to lend a hand or help a friend or neighbour, but it’s safe to say nothing compared to the love he felt for his wife, children and grandchildren. They were his everything.


There are no words to truly describe the loss of this incredible man. A loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be missed by all who knew him and his memory will forever live on through his family.


Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service at Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Road, 705-945-7758), on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. with Jim’s dear friend Mr. Mark Seeler officiating. Memorial donations to ARCH would be appreciated by the family.


Thank you to the staff at the Victoria London Hospital, Doctors Nicole Apostle and Vicki Coccimiglio, and nurse Sierra Grey for the care and support shown to Jim and our family. Special thank you to the wonderful staff at ARCH for making Jim’s final days comfortable.
