Obituary

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of John Rhystyd James “Rus” of Edmonton, AB on June 29, 2013 at the age of 79.

Rus was born in Drumheller, AB on December 27, 1933. He was predeceased by son, Thomas; two grandchildren, Melissa and Joseph; parents, John and Mary, three sisters and two brothers.

Rus will be forever remembered by his loving wife of 56 years, Mona James; four children, Monica (Jim) Sullivan, Rhys David James, John (Brenda) James and Mary Ann James; five grandchildren, Alicia, Nathaniel, Katelynn, Dylan and Jessica and one great-granddaughter, Violet Ann.

His family meant the world to him. He enjoyed reading, gardening, golfing, vacations and a good social time. He had a strong work ethic. He was a Hospital Administrator in Boyle, AB for many years and never quit until the job was complete.

Rus will be greatly missed and fondly remembered for his generosity, sense of humor and devotion to his family. He was a Grand Knight and a Eucharist Minister at St. Alphonsus Church in Boyle, AB. Generous by nature, he volunteered on various committees, one being the Boyle Fire Department.

Prayers will take place at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 18407 – 60 Avenue, Edmonton on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. Reverend Jwarnes Reddy Duggimpudi will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial at Good Shepherd on Thursday, July 4, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, 14611 Mark Messier Trail, Edmonton.

In memory of Rus donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 10985 – 124 Street, Edmonton, AB, T5M 0H9.

In Loving Memory of
John Rhystyd James
