James Oliver Bogle

November 20, 1934 - September 10, 2015


Mr. James (Jim) Oliver Bogle of Powell River, BC died suddenly but peacefully on Thursday, September 10 at the age of 80 at Powell River General Hospital.

Jim was born in Roblin, Manitoba, on November 20, 1934. One of five brothers and two sisters, Jim was the first son of Scottish parents to be born in Canada. As a young man, Jim travelled to Calgary for the Calgary Stampede and never looked back, settling in Calgary and pursuing his passion in aviation. This lead him to work for more than 30 years at the Calgary Airport, retiring in 1994 as Vice President/General Manager of Executive Flight Centre.

In 1958, Jim married Lavonne Becker and the couple had one daughter, Enola Gay. Jim had an amazing, vibrant sense of humour. He was an avid fisherman, retiring to Texada Island and in recent years moving to Powell River as his health declined with Parkinson's disease.

Jim will be missed dearly by his surviving wife Lavonne, daughter Enola, daughter-in-law Rebecca, brothers Andy and Bob, sisters Betty and Beverly, and many nieces and nephews.

At Jim's request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson's Society of Canada.
