Deepest condolences

It is with deep sadness that I learned of Jim's passing. We met many years ago at the Matchpoint Tennis

Club at the Kingston airport & have met on the court many times since. He was always calm & unflappable & always a gentleman. He was also a very good tennis player.He will be deeply missed. I remember the Fergusons from growing up in Beaurepaire.

My sincere condolences to his family.

It was with such a heavy heart that I learned of the news of Jim's passing. We had played a wonderful summer of tennis this past year. Jim always such a wonderful friend, a gentle man whose heart and soft spoken words were a blessing to all who knew him. I shall truly miss his welcoming warm presence on the tennis court this summer. Loved this dear man. God Bless you Jim and may my sincerest and deepest sympathies to his children and family.
Neighbour for over forty years

Our sincere condolences to all of you. We met your family over forty years ago. Your Dad and Mom were great neighbours. In later years we admired your Dad’s phyisical strength as he kept up his house and cut his own grass. His friendly smile and presence in our neighbourhood will be certainly be missed.
