James Christopher Manuel
October 7, 1939 – March 24, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of James (Jim) Manuel, of Oakville, ON announce the loss of this great man. Jim was born to Raymond & Dorothy Manuel in Campbellton, NL.
He will be forever remembered by the way he made people feel and the integrity with which he approached life. He was gifted with the skilled hands of a magician that could fix anything, the brain of an engineer that could build anything, the heart of a saint who saw the good in everyone and everything. Jim was well read, an avid sailor, dog lover (especially of Bonzo and Rambo), and a respected man who was supportive of the people around him and his community.
Jim is survived by his sweetheart Yordie Dawn (Prosper) his beloved companion of 23 years, and a vast extended family and friends: Cate Carruthers, Michael Carruthers, Laurie Carroll-Carruthers, Jo-Ann Prosper, Dennis Keough, Sadie Keough, Louis Keough, Ben Douglas and so many others, too numerous to name.
Jim had a long successful productive career. As a graduate of Memorial University of NL, he began his career in Raleigh, NL as a teacher and moved on to many highly success roles until his retirement.
Thank you to Dr. Fasano and team, Toronto Western Hospital Unit 5B, Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and the staff at The Post Inn for their exceptional care.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date to be announced.
Should friends desire, contributions to the Parkinson’s Foundation or the Oakville Milton Humane Society will be greatly appreciated.
