The love and admiration for each other will live on forever. Son of the late Dorothy and Douglas Spurr. Son-in-law of Ella Clayton. Jim was special uncle to Amanda Bonin Farquhar (Ryan), and their boys Liam and Owen. Amanda lived at uncle Jim’s for many years and the love they shared for each other was special.

Beloved brother –in-law to Mary Abbott (Don), Debbie Clayton, Brent Clayton (Linda), Hal Clayton, Verna Wigmore (Gord), June Varcoe (Jim), Debbie Hayes and Jim Hammond.
