Jim Gardiner of Blenheim passed away on Thursday September 28, 2017.  He was born 79 years ago to Gladys (Drury) Gardiner and the late Percy Gardiner.  He will be remembered fondly by his wife Cheryl (Johns) Gardiner, his daughter Wendy & David VanEerd and their children Keith and Victoria of Highgate and Mike Gardiner of London was well as his chosen family Kim Johns, Dana Hines (Gary), David Johns and John Johns all of the USA with their 12 children.

Jim was one of 7 siblings and is survived by his sisters Ruth and Donna both of Chatham, his brother Bill of Erie Beach and his brother Wayne of Chatham.  He was predeceased by his sister Darlene and his brother Bob.

Jim worked for many years as a linesman for the Blenheim PUC.  He enjoyed life to the fullest, especially if it included being on the lake.  It was his wish that friends and family remember him quietly and if someone wanted to make a memorial donation that they would consider helping the Lung Association.  Cremation has taken place.  Blenheim Community Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements.
