James Groot



Dr. James Groot passed away peacefully on May 4, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife, Evelyn (nee Radomsky) of St.Albert. James is also survived by his daughters, Jackie Groot of Calgary and Lisa (Robert) Lee of Spruce Grove; grandchildren, Nicole and Alex Achtymichuk of Calgary; and sister, Elizabeth (Gary) Ponich of Sammamish, Washington. He leaves behind his sisters-in-law, Sandy, Geri and Patricia; nephews, Jeff (Marion), Ben, Erik (Catha), Tim, Chris, Michael and Robert. He also leaves behind his grand dog, Maxi and part time companion dog, Thomas.

Jim was predeceased by his parents, Jack and Eva Groot; brothers, Jack, Jerry and Don; his in-laws, Nick and Mary Radomsky; many aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends.

Jim was born in Houston, B.C. and grew up in the Norwood area of Edmonton. Jim and Ev were married in Edmonton on August 4, 1962. He was manager of the men's shoe department at the Hudson's Bay Company where he made many lifelong friends. Jim decided to change course and graduate from the University of Alberta School of Dentistry in 1974 and built his practice along with Ev in Calgary and Cochrane. Jim was a skilled soapstone carver, jewelry maker, disorganized banjo player, swimmer, curler, avid outdoorsman, a jack of all trades and an all around good egg.

He will be deeply missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

Thank you to all family, friends and neighbors for being there for us.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Edmonton Humane Society or Alberta SPCA.

According to Jim's wishes no service or memorial will be held.

In Loving Memory of
James Groot
