James (Jim) Edward Frid

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, father-in-law, and friend James (Jim) Edward Frid on May 29, 2015. Jim was born on September 11, 1944, in Vancouver and spent long periods of his life in Golden and Kamloops, British Columbia.


Jim worked as a professional driver. In his early years, he drove logging and fuel trucks; more recently, he drove school buses. He took great pride in doing every job he ever had to the best of his ability and was always devoted to his travellers.


Although Jim had many passions, he particularly enjoyed gardening, golfing, playing guitar, singing and following hockey. He cherished spending time with and caring for his furry loved ones, especially Elvis of late. He treasured the memories from his many trips to Mexico.


Jim lived with joy and loved his family. His sense of humour, quick wit, resiliency and optimism in the face of hardship and ability to make friends with all types of people will forever be an inspiration.


Jim is survived by many family members and friends – you all know who you are. We sincerely appreciate the support and care that has been extended by so many over the years, especially during this difficult time. At Jim’s request, there will be no memorial service. Instead, Jim would be delighted if you take pause, give thanks for what you have, and bring a smile and some laughter to someone’s life.


In lieu of flowers, donations in Jim’s memory may be made to the Cancer Society, Kamloops branch.
