Paul Jims Imrich
June 15, 1935 ~ February 9, 2024 (age 88) 88 Years Old
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Paul “Jim” Imrich on February 9th. Jim was a loving husband to Meg Imrich for 61 years and amazing father to Brad (June) Imrich, Kathy (Mike) Finch and Doug (Fern) Imrich. He was also a proud Grandpa to 9 grand children.
Jim was born in Dawson Creek in 1935 and was raised on his family farm until he left to attend UBC where he studied math and science before completing his education degree. He started his 37-year teaching career in Kitimat, B.C. where he met his Australian bride Meg.
Together they moved to Prince George in 1961 where they raised their three kids and had an outstanding life. Jim moved through the education system from high school teacher to Vice Principal and Principal. During that time he completed his Masters of Education from the University of Victoria. In 1982 he moved to the board office and eventually retired in 1995 after 11 years as the Superintendent of SD 57.
Both Jim and Meg believed in giving back to the community. Jim was a long standing Rotarian, a dedicated volunteer at Camp Trapping and the Prince George Community Foundation. Jim also volunteered at every level of the sports or activities his children participated in.
Jim loved to fish and hunt at the family cabin on Stuart Lake and later in life he loved to fly fish with his fishing partners. He was a builder for his family and friends (over 20 beds reside in our homes along with dining room tables, shelves and benches to name a few). Amid these hobbies Meg and Jim travelled the world together, spent time with family and enjoyed a long retirement.
Our family would like to acknowledge the amazing care given to our father in his last few months by the nurses and staff at The Gateway Care Home. Your kindness is truly appreciated.
We would also like to acknowledge and thank our parent’s incredible friends. Jim and Meg are ever so thankful for your presence in their lives. The family will have a private celebration of life at a later date.
