Obituary for Jim Sills

Print
Surrounded by the love of his family, with the singing of Amazing Grace filling the air, James Francis Sills, passed away at London Health Sciences Centre, Victoria Campus, London on January 27, 2019. In his 73 years among us, Jim lived life with love for his family, devotion to faith and service to our community. Jim was a valued source of service and wisdom on Seaforth’s Main Street as the 4th generation owner of Sill’s Hardware. His wit and friendly demeanor gifted all of us with a reason to smile. In death, his gifts as an organ donor changed the lives of others in ways beyond the description of words.

Jim will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 47 years Anne (née Achilles) and their children Tracey and Jeff McKee, Edward (Ted) Sills, Donald (Don) and Lindsay Sills, and Timothy (Tim) and Jennifer Sills. Also fondly remembered by Tara Sills. Memories of a very special grandpa will be cherished by grandchildren Mitchell, Taylar, Isaiah, Mathew, Jacob, Matteo, Dinah, Ella, Leah, Lydia, Elena, Margaret, and Ada . Fond memories of a much loved brother remain with siblings and siblings-in-law Anne and John Mason, Mary and Gerald Townsend, Jane and Leonard Muegge, Margaret and Phil Beard, Joan and Neil Johnston along with many nieces, nephews and friends.In faith, we trust Jim’s spirit is now reunited in eternal life with his parents Frank and Dinah Sills, parents-in-law Rolly and Tennie Achilles and siblings-in-law Margaret Taylor and Don and Jerry Achilles.

Visitation will take place at McGlynn Family Funeral Home (519-527-1390), 87 Goderich Street West, Seaforth on Tuesday, January 29, from 7-9 p.m. and Wednesday, January 30 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Visitation will continue on Thursday, January 31 from 10-10:45 a.m. at St. James Catholic Church, 22 Victoria Street, Seaforth, followed by a time to honour Jim’s life and find comfort in our faith in a Mass of Christian Burial, commencing at 11 a.m. with Father Clare Coleman presiding. Fellowship and refreshments will follow at a reception at Seaforth Legion, Branch 156, 123 Main Street South, Seaforth. Burial will take place at St. James Catholic Cemetery in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation, Trillium Gift of Life Network , The Heart and Stroke Foundation or the St. James Church Building Fund would be appreciated by the family.
