A Celebration of Jimmy's life will take place
at a later date and will be announced.
James Raymond “Jimmy’” Boothe of Blenheim passed away on Saturday February 9, 2019 at the age of 48 years. He will be forever missed by his wife Wendy, his father Jim Boothe of Ridgetown, his sister Stephanie & John Fraser with their children Kirkie, Kalvin and Lexie of Morpeth, his brother Dennis & his partner of Winnipeg and his grandmother Elizabeth Boothe of Chatham. He will also be missed by many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his mother Carolynn (Colebrook) Boothe in 2012.
Jimmy was a hard working guy. He got his first job when he was 15 and met his future wife while he was detassling corn. He became very talented at fabrication and used that talent for many years at RM Auto Restoration before starting his own business Fargo Fab just outside Blenheim. Although on the surface he would have seemed to be a quiet person, his mind was always in motion thinking about how he could make something new or fix something old. He was the best uncle he could be, teaching Kirkie, Kalvin and Lexie life skills and getting them involved in hockey which was another passion of his own.
In keeping with Jimmy’s wishes, his family will remember him with a private family service on Tuesday and then his urn will be taken to Evergreen Cemetery where he will be laid to rest with his Mom. A Celebration of his life will be held at a later date and will be announced.
Family and friends wishing to remember him with a memorial donation are asked to consider the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
