It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dearest Jim (Hassie) Haskins in his 83rd year. Surrounded by his family,
Jim passed away peacefully at St. Francis Memorial Hospital, on September 26, 2016, after a battle with cancer. Beloved husband of Loraine; adored father of Jim (Wendy) and John (Gail); admired grandfather of Jack (Lindsay), Courtney and Hilary. Brother-in-law of Jeanne and Bill Pattison, Stan Ralph and Marcia Lamb. Uncle of many niece and nephews. Educator, mentor, volunteer, coach, outdoorsman, musician and artist. Jim had a life-long love of the Ottawa Valley - it’s scenery and it’s people. Jim will be forever missed by family and friends, but his memories will be cherished always. Our sincerest thanks for the wonderful care and support from the staff at St. Francis Memorial Hospital, and Dr. Jason Malinowski. Donations can be made in Jim’s memory to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation in Barry’s Bay. At the family’s request, there will be no formal visitation.
