James Joseph (Fergie) Ferguson

Passed away Nov 23, 2015 at Mountain Lake Seniors Community.

Dad was born on July 11,1928 in Orillia Ont. After he finished grade 7 he decided to leave home and make his way to BC to see the mountains. After working in local mines and on the Moyie Dad realized to get anywhere you had to know math, so he taught himself algebra. He became a very successful electrical contractor getting lots of work from the Department of Highways.

Jim is survived by his wife of 43 years Marie and by his daughter Nancy Ferguson (Tim LeRoy) and her children Sherry Johnson (Clint) and Patrick Hergott (Sam) and his son Robert Ferguson (Donna) and their children Becky Pepin (Andy) and Joey Ferguson, and twelve great-grandchildren.

Dad is predeceased by his son Steve Ferguson and survived by Steve’s wife Diana Ferguson and their children Cam Ferguson (Keri), Daniel Ferguson and Garett Ferguson. He is also survived by Marie’s two kids Steve Knowles and Marjorie Knowles.

Dad had a great love of the outdoors, animals and a passion for photography. He spent hours with his camera and took some pretty amazing pictures.

A lot of people will remember Jim riding his scooter down to the dog walk with Toto then Hazel strapped in the basket.

Dad spent this past year at Mountain Lake where he received wonderful care from the staff and Dr Janz
