Obituary

JAMES WALTER VICK (published on March 13, 2010)

JAMES WALTER VICK April 24, 1925 - March 1, 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jim Vick in Lloydminster, SK on March 1, 2010. He is survived by his loving wife Glenadean, children James, Heather (David), stepchildren Terri (Tim), Toni (Dewey) and Gary, and nine grandchildren. Predeceased by brother Bill, sister Ellen and first wife Christine. Born in Winnipeg he was a Second World War veteran, drove streetcar for Winnipeg Electric, joined Canada Post in 1953 and retired after 30 years. As well as teaching dance skating at the Winnipeg Roller Rink in the 1960s and 1970s, Jim was an accomplished pipe band drummer and teacher. He played lead drum for the Cameron and Henderson Highlanders and the Mass Pipes and Drums of Winnipeg, was Drum Major for the Calgary Highlanders and played with the Lloydminster and Battleford bands before retiring his drum in 2008. Jim returned annually to Winnipeg for the Cameron Highlanders Reunion and was happily anticipating the 2010 gathering. It was Jim's wish that there be no funeral or memorial service. Donations may be made in his name to the Canadian Cancer Society. And so goodbye to one who was, in his own words, genteel, sophisticated, suave, debonair and perfect in every way.
