James Anson Lively
February 21, 1942 – March 9, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James (Jim) Anson Lively, beloved husband, brother, father and grandfather on March 9, 2018 at the age of 76.
Jim was born on February 21, 1942 in Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia where he lived as a young boy until moving to Streamstown, near Lloydminster, Alberta in 1954, where he spent his youth growing up.
Jim married Judith Lynne Lafoy of Marwayne, Alberta in 1962 and together they worked and raised a family. Jim began his career as an Automotive Mechanic and moved with each new job opportunity, living in Prince George, Kelowna, Lloydminster and Carbon, before settling in Calgary to be closer to family and spend his retirement years.
Jim was hard working his whole life, who enjoyed restoring old cars, building RC airplanes, building and fixing, but most of all he enjoyed helping friends who needed an extra hand to finish a project.
Jim leaves behind his wife of 56 years Judy, his brothers Harry (Linda), Ronnie (Bonnie), Randy (Denise), sisters Deana, Fern (Larry), Sadie (Curt), brother-in-law Byron, brother-in-law Stan (Judy), sons Terry (Nola), Lee (Cheryl), , grandchildren Brandon, Ashtyn, William (Tianna), Patricia and James, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Jim was predeceased by his parents Jim and Mable, Sister Marion (Blair), Sister Joan (Raymond), Sister Sandra, Brother Allan, and Brother-in-law Carl.
We will have a Celebration of life this summer at Streamstown.
The Lively Family would like to thank everyone at the Mount Royal Care Facility in Calgary for their commitment to “quality of life” and providing a caring and supportive environment for Jim during his stay at the facility.
