It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James Kazakoff. James entered the world March 1966 and passed suddenly Nov. 7, 2013 in Colinton, Alberta at the age of 47.

He is survived by his parents Janet and Joe, brother Jason, sons Cody, Nic, Josh, daughter-in-law Tessa, grandson to be and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

James had a passion for spending time with his family and friends outdoors, hunting, fishing and camping. He loved cooking, photography, golf, music and nature. He had a huge loving heart and a mischievous way to make us smile. He is truly missed and will never be forgotten. “Forever and Always.” Rest in peace.

All are welcome to a celebration of James’ life on Saturday, November 23rd at 2 p.m. at our family farm at 5850 Kenmore Road, Grand Forks, B.C.
