Obituary

WILLIAM JAMES "JIM" HARNUM
1926 - 2019

William James “Jim” Harnum passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday July 25th, 2019.

Jim was predeceased by his loving wife Jean Harnum, his parents Eliol & Annie Harnum of Port Union, his sisters Barbara and Lillian. Leaving to mourn are his children Bob (Cheryl) Harnum, Daphne(Ed) Ricketts, Jim (Alice) Harnum and Tammy (Norm) Pinsent. Jim was blessed with 10 grandchildren: Natasha, Stephen, Michael, Bobby, David, Shawn, Trina, Jody, Ashley and Amber. He also had 12 very much adored great grandchildren. Ryan, Andrew, James, Lindsey, Matthew, Lisa, Nicole, Rachel, Jake, Brett, Brianna and MacKenzie and most recently one great grandson Myles. Also left mourn is his brother Robert (Joan) Harnum of Clarenville, his sisters Ida Party, Vera (Nigel) Brenson of Bonavista and Edith (Hector) White of North West River Labrador.

Jim was known for his love of the woods and being up at the cabin were some of his best times. His love of the outdoors and his family were unsurpassed. His greatest joy came from his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Jim enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others over his lifetime and some of those shared moments had a very big influence on the lives he touched.

I remember Mr. Harnum very well. I believe he worked with Sprague and Henwood, the drilling company contracted by ASARCo in Buchans. If I remember correctly, he was also a powerfully built man, quiet, but very friendly and talkative - if he liked you.

My memories goes back maybe fifty years ago when he was probably in his late thirties, early forties. From all the pictures posted he left quite the legacy of family and friends.

Even back then he seemed content /happy with where he was in life and I think all those pictures since then, reflect that.
My deepest sympathy to Bob and Cheryl and the extended families of Mr. Harnum. A life well lived.
