Dear brother of Elizabeth Martin (Dick) and Nancy Hudson. Survived by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents (Alvin and Annie) and his brother Bob Paisley (Leanore). Jim belonged to many horse clubs and organizations. Jim began his long time career of truck driving at the age of 15, driving livestock for his dad. He cherished his transport truck and meticulously cared for it inside and out. He participated in many truck shows and won awards. He loved golfing and looked forward to going to Forest Golf and Country Club. They went above and beyond to make sure he enjoyed his time on the course this summer, in his final rounds. Jim loved and adored his wife, Lynn. He was proud of each and every one of his children. He was the best grandpa 6 grandkids could ask for. The family would like to hugely thank the team of doctors and nurses at both Bayshore, Palliative Care and Bluewater Heath. You all have been so kind and caring for husband, dad and grandpa.
