  4. To Chris, Shane, Amanda, Robyn, Kevin, Tony, Mary, John and family,
    I can only imagine the depth of loss you feel. Jim was a true friend from the first time I called to see the family at Yinnar when I was chaplain with the Deaf Community, operating from the John Pierce Centre.
    Chris and Jim were so generous and loyal, not only to the John Pierce Centre but to a myriad of many other community groups.
    Jim was a man of tangible faith who poured out his life for many.
    Well done, Jim. enjoy eternal rest.
    Thank you Robyn and Shane for the eulogy. you both did so well.
    My sympathies, Fr. Greg Bourke

  10. Jim Chris and family
    I only got to know Jim in his last years as a member of the Catenian’s Catholic Men’s Group.
    On the occasions I was able to chat to Jim on the phone or at our meetings, he was always so positive even whilst undergoing treatment.
    He loved life and we were able to witness this when he spoke at our meeting about his time in the Railways and all of his other jobs during his career. In our calls it was evident how much he loved his grand children always telling me he loved seeing them

    He will be truly missed by family and friends and the wider community



  11. To Jim’s family and friends,
    I knew Jim in the latter years of his days on earth.
    It was a privilege to have known him and briefly knowing Chris & now hearing
    The eulogy given at the service today. I was fortunate to already know some of
    the details from a presentation Jim gave to our Catenian men’s group.
    Vale Jim.
    Bernie Cosgriff.

  12. Sending sincere condolences, Chris, to you and your family and to Tony, Leanne and family.

    In time, may your treasured memories bring you comfort and peace.


  13. Sending our love to you all today, we are there by your side even if not in person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. With love from Anthony, Kath, Grace and Thomas xx

  14. Chris, Shane and Robyn.
    I worked with Jim for years and he spoke of you often, with great pride and affection. I was shown so many photos of you guys and the kids, so that I felt as if I knew you as well as he did.

    Jim was very much respected in the Railways, and was very well liked. I very much enjoyed working with him. Cowboy, Reg, Steve and I always had a great time at work with him

    Thank you for sharing him with us.
