Laundry, Jimmy

It is with heavy hearts that the Laundry family announces the passing of our dear father, son, brother and friend, Jimmy. He passed on Sunday, December 20, 2020 from a variation of ALS. Jimmy died peacefully at St Joseph’s Continuing Care Center – Clarion Site surrounded by his favourite girls. Jimmy leaves behind his loving daughter, Jennifer. Beloved son of Isaiah (predeceased) and Patricia Laundry (nee Lariviere). Cherished brother of Chris (Laurie), Lourdis (predeceased) and Dominique. He will be greatly missed by his many nieces, nephews and by many close friends whom he considered family. He was a short, tough guy with a heart of gold. He loved his sports and took pride in watching his daughter become the athlete he trained her to be. He had a love for life. A simple life. He was a man of simple tastes. He loved his Labatt Blue and his chips, the Lone Ranger and his many other Western TV shows. He loved Country & Western music (especially Merle Haggard), cars (oh so many, many cars) and his beloved pets. He loved his family (and friends) and would drop everything when needed. He made people’s day with his kind, loving personality. He was the first to make a room laugh, smile or break the ice with a joke. He was a very funny man and he had a special intuition in the moment that was awe inspiring. He never hesitated to rise to the moment and take charge. He was the most reliable guy you ever met. He had a very special way with people. Jim is the reason we all say “I love you” at the end of every phone call or every visit. He made us all much better people. He was a light in many people’s life. He was a hero to many...and will be greatly missed. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Jimmy taught us that we need a village throughout our whole life. The way that his “village” came together at the end was something magical. He was surrounded, loved and supported right until his last breath. To see that many people come together is how you know his life was influential and meaningful. In lieu of flowers he would want you to go buy lottery tickets or make a donation to ALS society as they were amazing throughout his rough journey.

4 Condolences

  1. My condolences to Jimmy’s loved ones, and to those that had even just the luck to know him.
    Jimmy had a way of making an impact on people. He was always ready with humour, advice, or a fresh perspective when needed, and somehow he always knew the right time for each one. He was a rare kind of person, as he had a huge personality, and was straight to the point, but was also soft and valued love above all things in life.

    He will be missed dearly.

  2. Condolences to Jimmy’s family. He was such a great addition to our Ainsworth family get togethers and barbecues. I will always remember Jimmy tooting the horn on his snow plow when he passed by our house as kids. It was great to have him so close by and at our gatherings. Sending light, love, and prayers.
