JAMES LEDREW Peacefully on July 21, 2009 at the Health Sciences Centre, James LeDrew, beloved husband of Caroline of 53 years, passed away at the age of 78 years. Jim was predeceased by his parents, his brother Gary and sister Joan. He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife Caroline, sons Gary and Gordon (Colleen), daughter Linda and his precious grandchildren Edyn and Brennan. Jim started working for Babcock Wilcox in 1951, working on many major sites as Project Manager, constructing major power plants across the country. After years of hard work Jim started his own business, LeDrews Boiler Repair Company Ltd. in 1960, where he became well respected and liked throughout the business community. He made many friends in the business throughout his working years. Jim was involved in his business right up to his passing; his son Gary will continue the family business. Jim loved to spend time with his family. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and taking long walks. In his later years he spent time at his cottage and enjoyed his annual trip to the Royal Scot in Victoria where he continued to enjoy being outdoors. Jim will be missed dearly by his family and beloved grandchildren. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the Step Down and Intensive Care Units at the Health Sciences Centre for all their help and support.
