Jim was the oldest of nine kids and worked at the local lumberyard and then MB Foundations for 30 years. He loved spending time with both family and friends, hanging out by the fire on Friday nights, fishing and watching the kids play sports. Jim was always ready to help others but would never ask for help himself.
He was a well-known figure in the community for his ease of banter, always keeping those around town on their toes.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents James and Louise and younger brother Ronald. He is survived by children Mike Blouin, Robert Blouin, Terri Hill and Troy Morgan; grandchildren Brionna, Skyler, Jilian, Joe, Amanda and Nicole; great-grandchildren Maci, Leo and Lincoln; siblings Denis, Annette, Dana, Scott, David, Steve and Sandra.
Celebration of life for friends and family to be held 1-2 p.m. Sat. June 12, at Driftwood Park, 399 Keystone Ave. Private family service to follow at another location.
