Jim was a founding member of the Granite Curling Club, and enjoyed it for many years. His passion was golf, which he played as a member of the Ottawa Hunt Club until he was 90. Although he was always very low-key and humble about it, Jim was a volunteer ‘extraordinaire’ – Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre, United Church of Canada, the Ottawa Rotary Club, and many others. He was awarded the Paul Harris Fellow by the Ottawa Rotary Club, recognizing in particular, his years of ongoing assistance in the establishing and running of the Ottawa Rotary Home for Children. In 2003 he received the Golden Jubilee Medal in recognition of significant achievement and service to his fellow citizens of Canada.
