ABSON, James Donald Flying Officer, 415 Squadron, RCAF, World War II, Former Ottawa Rough Rider Much loved husband of Doris (Dori) Christina Nias (long-term care at Wakefield Memorial Hospital), beloved father of Mike (Esther Schmidlin) of Switzerland, Jan (Cameron Haig) of Vancouver, and Jill (Colin MacWhirter) of Montreal, charming grandfather of Jenna Haig, Devon Abson and Kyla Haig, uncle of Sue (Marshall) (Allan Profitt), and great uncle of Chelsea and Jordan Profitt. Predeceased by parents Emma and Gordon, sister Grace, brother-in-law Roy Marshall, and nephew Gregg Marshall. Jim Abson died peacefully, at the age of 88, on Friday November 21, 2008 in his new Montreal apartment, which he shared with his two cats. Jim was born in Ottawa West and was a long-time resident of Wakefield, Quebec, an area he loved. Formerly a member of the Canada Labour Relations Board and an Ontario labour negotiator, Jim was a skier, a chef, an artist, an animal lover, and, in his heyday, a pretty good half back with the Ottawa Rough Riders football club. A navigator on Halifaxes, Jim bailed out in 1944 over Mount Snowdon, where local Welsh farmers at first took him and his crew for Germans, a misunderstanding that was eventually resolved in a local pub. He met his dispatch rider wife-to-be when they were both on leave in Scarborough, England in 1945. They were married for 63 years. Not the kind to be easily forgotten, he will be much missed. Love you Dad. Memorial service to be held in the Spring, date to be announced. Donations in Jim's name can be made to Friends of Abandoned Pets 613-729-9820 Published in the Ottawa Citizen from 11/23/2008- 11/25/2008
