James (Jim) Race

January 1, 1961 — March 1, 2024

January 1, 1961 ~ March 1, 2024

The evening of March 1, 2024, Jim passed suddenly in his home due to a massive heart attack. He had his loving wife, Ida, by his side. Not everyone is fortunate enough to get such true love but Jim was.

Jim was born January 1, 1961. He met the love of his life at a Great Falls hall social and the rest is a love story like no other. After a short courtship they knew it was meant to be and Jim got down on one knee. Married on July 2, 1988. They raised 4 children together, Andrew (Rizza, Brielle and Daniel), Evan (Phil), Karley (Steven, Clay and Liam), Joshua (Jaylene).

Jim’s adventurous spirit lead the family on many great expeditions together. The family loved the outdoors. From crazy road trips across the country, to fishing, to long walks in nature.  Jim and Ida were a team who did everything together.  So many memories were made while camping, gardening, hiking, kayaking, and even cooking. He loved his family unconditionally and was there to offer a helping hand whenever anyone needed.  His generosity knew no bounds.  He was known as a local hardware store and the price was right (a conversation).

He leaves behind a large extended family.  His loving wife Ida, and 4 children and their spouses, 4 grandchildren, his brothers and sisters, in-laws as well as his mother in-law and father in-law (Robert and Jeannine Chevrefils).  He will be missed everyday by those he left behind that were fortunate enough to have loved him.

Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated on Friday, March 8, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Georges Roman Catholic Church in St. Georges, Manitoba. Interment will follow at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jim’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
