Jim Hill
August 27, 1935 - August 20, 2003

Funeral arrangements by
Regina Funeral Home

It is with deepest love and sorrow that we announce the passing of James Leroy Hill on Wednesday, August 20, 2003 at the age of 67, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his “girls” in the warmth of the Palliative Care Unit of the Salvation Army William Booth Special Care Home in Regina, Saskatchewan. Predeceased by his parents, Arthur Hill (1967) and Olive Hill (2001), his son David Hill (1991), his step-daughter Toni Davis (2000) and his father-in-law Harry Rohatensky (1997); he leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife Fran; his step-daughters Traci Davis of Yorkton and Terri (Rick) Pozniak of Calgary; nine grandchildren, Angela Hill, Edgerton, Alberta, Randi Davis, Regina, Joel, Jordan, James and Morgan, Yorkton and Conner, Kylie and Hayden, Calgary; his brother Raymond and (Muriel) Hill, Wawanesa, Manitoba; his sister Shirley and (Harry) Duckworth, Winnipeg, Manitoba; his mother-in-law Evelyn Rohatensky, Yorkton; eight nieces and nephews and their life partners; and nineteen great-nieces and nephews.

Jim enjoyed a full career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (30 years) – all of his postings were in Saskatchewan. He retired from the RCMP as Chief Reader in 1985 and was employed by the Department of Highways as Dangerous Goods Officer for the next 11 years. His third ‘career’ was Manager of the Scarlet and Gold Gift Shop (RCMP Museum), where he was employed for five years when he resigned due to illness.

Jim enjoyed curling and golfing, attending Pats hockey games, annual fishing excursions with his buddies, gardening and yard work and his daily exercise walks and ball games with his dog Molly. His family and grandchildren were his pride and joy. Family events, holidays and celebrations were his favorite times. Jim’s cheerful disposition, positive attitude and fun-loving spirit were his trademark. He had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed story-telling. He spent many hours telling tales to his grandchildren, who were always his captive audience. He was the neighbourhood ‘watchman’ and loved to tease and spend time with the kids on the block and his neighbours. He looked forward to our trips to his brother’s farm to visit family and friends, catch up on the news and bring back fond memories of his growing up years. He ‘dabbled’ in the art of auctioneering ‘just for fun’ at work or church events. He loved the outdoors and had a great respect for nature and the environment. He was always willing to take on a new challenge and will be remembered for his enthusiasm and determination to do a good job – no matter what the task. He was a policeman’s policeman – he talked the talk and walked the walk. Jim enjoyed life to the fullest and will leave a lasting impression on the lives he touched. He was our inspiration, our teacher, our anchor – and we will miss him so much.

Goodbye for now to a wonderful husband, father, granddad, brother (in-law), son (in-law), uncle, comrade, neighbour and friend – your memory will live on in our hearts forever.

Thank you to Reverend Paul Dillman and our Heritage United Church friends and acquaintances, RCMP Veterans and wives, Active Members and wives, the Morse gang and all of Jim’s very dear friends, wonderful caring neighbours, troop mates and work acquaintances who offered encouragement and support throughout his illness. Very special thanks to Dr. Stewart MacMillan and Dr. Kumar and to the cheerful, dedicated team of the Palliative Care Unit for their loving care and compassion. Your professional contributions are appreciated.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden death of our son, Michael David Edwards on July 20, 2003 at the age of 26. Mike was born in Regina on July 2, 1977 and lit up our lives.

Mike’s love of music became apparent at a very early age and he joined the Regina Lions Band at 8 years old.

His family was constantly amazed at his talent.

Mike attended McLurg and Centennial Schools, Thom Collegiate and the U of R. He loved performing and went on to play with many local bands and in many venues. He was at his happiest on stage.

He will be missed by his many friends and all who knew him, especially Alexis.

He worked in the music program of the Long Lake School District and was the first director of the Eastend School Division Band. In February of 1974, Lorne was involved in a car accident that severely impacted his life and the lives of his family. After fighting through the challenges and change, Lorne embraced life in many ways. He and his family became very involved in the Regina Disabled Ski Club, where he went on to win two National Gold Metals. He was an avid waterskier and curler. Lorne never let his disability stand in the way of anything he wanted to accomplish. He was always proud of his success in acquiring gifts in kind for the Penzance Dinner Theatre. After moving to Regina, Lorne pursued his interest in music by spending his evenings dancing. Friends and family would watch in awe as he would dance the night away. He also vacationed in Mexico and Hawaii.

Lorne was predeceased by his parents Hugo and Jean. Left to cherish his memory are his children: Michael and Dawn; sister Donna (Al) Black; special aunt Beatrice McBeath; cherished friend Eva Woodley; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
