It is with great sadness that the family of James Peter Ryan announces his passing on Monday, April 9, 2018 at La Verendrye General Hospital in Fort Frances, Ont.
He was born on July 29, 1941 in Fort Frances to Edward and Ann Ryan. He grew up in Fort Frances, moving away as a young man to travel and work. He took several trips across Europe, learning about his Irish and Ukrainian heritage.
Jim also loved to read and this passion led him to work in the library in both Thunder Bay, Ont. and Calgary, Alta.
