Obituary for James Kenneth Middleton

Jim Middleton of Medicine Hat, beloved husband of Doreen Middleton, passed away on Monday, March 16th, 2020 at the age of 76 years. He also leaves to cherish in memory his sons, Scott (Kelly) and Brent (Melissa); two grandchildren, Wren and Holden.; several cousins and many long-time friends and neighbours. He was predeceased by his parents, Jim and Isabel; niece, Michelle of Coronation, AB; brother-in-law, Bob, of Erskine, AB; numerous aunts, uncles and some cousins. Jim was a dedicated teacher for 37 years at Alexandra Jr. High School, retiring in 2004. Since then he and Doreen enjoyed annual vacations to Arizona for Baseball Spring Training, to Mexico, Hawaii and Florida. These trips always included family and/or friends and several books to read. At a young age Jim had a serious interest in all sports which he passionately continued as a coach or spectator when his son’s, and now grandchildren, participate. We need to mention his love of chocolate and home baking, especially gingersnaps and apple pie. Jim truly felt blessed to “grandparent” his sweet grandkids in Edmonton. Everyone agrees, although seemingly tough, he was loved and appreciated more than he realized. In honour of Jim’s memory, continue to enjoy your morning coffee with the daily news in print, on TV and on I-Pad. Family and friends will be notified of the Celebration of Life that will take place in the Spring. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the SPCA or Heart and Stroke Foundation.
