James Blyth

BLYTH, James William…

Jim passed away peacefully on November 29th after a long battle with Alzheimer’s at the age of 67. Born in Calgary in 1950, Jim grew up the son of Alan and Violet Blyth, and brother to David, Cathy and Bryan. Jim grew up in Ottawa before attending the University of Toronto from which he graduated as a Mechanical Engineer in 1973. Jim began his career with the De Havilland Aircraft Company but spent most of his career with the CNSC before retiring while at OPG. Jim spent the end of his life living close to family in London. Loving father to his two children, Aimee and Christian, and particular joy for his 4 grandchildren; Quinlyn, Coraline, Wyatt, and Galen. In addition he will be sorely missed by Allan (brother-in-law), Debby (sister-in-law) and his nieces Katelyn and Victoria and his nephews David and Mack. In lieu of flowers, Jim’s preference is to provide a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada. Cremation London & Middlesex entrusted with arrangements 519- 858-2467.

  1. My heartfelt sympathy to Christian, Aimee and family. What a wonderful father you both had. I will miss my brother with all my heart but the memories will live on. Rest in peace Jim. Your loving sister Cathy.

  2. I worked for Jim at the CNSC for a number of years. Jim had stars in his eyes when he spoke of Aimee and Christian. Jim was a great man and he will be missed. Rest In Peace my friend. Roxane Lauzon

  3. Jim was a very decent person with a great sense of humour. I am very fortunate and grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him during his time at the CNSC. My sincere condolences go to the family.

  4. My heart goes out to my cousins with the loss of Jim. He was a lovely man and like his dad had a twinkle in his eye at the best and worst of times. I saw him in London several times in recent years and always came away smiling.

  5. Like my brother Sam, my heart goes out to my cousins. I was so lucky to have had a few lovely, honest conversations with Jim at Trent when he visited his splendid daughter Aimee. I’ll also remember with love and respect visiting him in London. He talked about his diagnosis with such courage and dignity.
