It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of James (Jim) Allan Armstrong, who died tragically in Stouffville, ON as a result of a helicopter crash, on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, at the age of 51. Jim was the son of Lois and Allan (predeceased) Armstrong and is survived by his brother Andy (Sylvie). Fondly remembered by his nephews Alex, Danny and his niece Madeleine. Survived by his stepmom Doreen Armstrong, stepsisters Lisa Brooks and Lianne Demers. Sadly missed by his aunts and uncles, Gloria (Ron) Sirkka and Kent (Cherry) Armstrong. Jim will be greatly remembered by his cousins Debbie Fortin, Jeff (Jane) Groom, Glenn (Shannon) Groom, Mike (Grace) Sirkka, Jeff Sirkka, Tim Geden and Tony (Wendy) Geden. After graduating with a diploma in Business Administration from Cambrian College, Jim later discovered his passion for flying helicopters. He pursued this passion as a lead flight instructor with Essential Helicopters in North Bay, ON, where he will be dearly remembered by staff and students alike. He was happiest when in the air! He enjoyed a lifetime of laughter at the family camp in Whitefish Falls, ON. A place near and dear to our entire family. In keeping with the family’s request there will be no visitation or service. A Celebration of Jim’s Life will be held at the Ambassador Hotel, 225 Falconbridge Rd., Sudbury, on Sunday, September 30, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 pm. Bring your memories.
