1944 – 2015

Mr. James Spires ‘Jim’ McInenly of Red Deer, Alberta, passed away at the Red Deer Hospice on Sunday, August 30, 2015 at the age of 70 years. Jim was born on December 22, 1944 at Delburne, Alberta to Mary and Alfred McInenly. Jim had a successful plumbing career, helping to establish Burmac Mechanical in Stettler, Alberta. He worked hard to obtain many certificates and accomplishments in the Plumbing Industry, and was held in high regard for his expertise. He had many hobbies that he enjoyed; including fishing, hunting, and gardening (potatoes especially!). During his prime, Jim was a social man; always involved in an organization or gathering around town. His charm, sense of humor, and gentle manner will never be forgotten, and he will missed by his family and friends.
