James Colley Obituary, Death – James Colley died on November 25, 2022, at the age of 63, while a patient at Toronto General Hospital. He was surrounded by family and friends at the time of his death. How could such a larger-than-life man who loved unconditionally fit into such a small space? He was everything a young man should want to be and more. He was loving, kind, generous, dependable, and strong all at the same time.
He worked for General Motors for thirty years and met the woman who would become his wife there. His laugh and smile could brighten even the darkest of days, and we will all be better people for having had the opportunity to love and be loved by him for so long. His laugh and smile had the ability to bring light into the darkest of situations. It was incredible to see how much he cared for his family. Nancy adored Jimmy, and even though she has moved on, she will never forget him. Tyler and Kayla Durkin (Coral) will always hold him in high regard as a father, as they do now. His stepchildren, Stephanie and Greg Schaeffer, will always have a special place in their hearts for him (Sara).
Riley and Sophia’s Papa J will never be replaced. Jack’s brother and John’s devoted son (Rose). Kim Huntley’s most dedicated and devoted friend. Before him died his mother Shirley (nee Croft), sister Jeannie, brother Jeffrey, and son-in-law Dave (Stephanie). His nieces and nephews, as well as the rest of his family, will be devastated by his passing. Roy Cannon, Bob Heeney, Gary Conway, Marty and Dawn Betts, and other longtime friends will each mourn in their own way. We only wish we could give you another hug, laugh with you, or watch a Rams game with you.
You will be remembered long after any of our lives have ended because someone like you can never be forgotten. The arrangements have been entrusted to the MORSE and SON FUNERAL HOME, located at 5917 Main Street in Niagara Falls. Cremation was performed as James had requested prior to his death. The Colley family would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Lincoln County Humane Society in James’ memory. Both organizations do important work.
