James (Jim) Richard Myram passed August 25, 2008, peacefully with his loving family by his side.

He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews on both sides of the family, and by his best buddy, “Askem.”
Jim fulfilled all of his dreams and goals, first by buying his own logging trucks and then owning JIM MYRAM TRUCKING, obtaining his pilot’s license, and owning and operating a retail store in Kamloops. Gold mining was his greatest joy.
Jim loved his family and spent the last two years playing cards,
watching TV and enjoying his time with his family, siblings and
friends. Askem, his dog, was his companion and best buddy.
Jim traveled and worked in many parts of British Columbia and
Alberta. He made many friends, he worked hard and played
hard. Jim went back to his faith late in 2007 and was baptized
on March 9, 2008.
Thanks to Dr. T. Clare and his staff and to Dr. S. Jones for their gentleness and care.
Rest in peace. Until we meet again.
