Obituary for Robert James Buchanan (High River)

Jim was born January 13, 1928 on a farm close to Unity, Saskatchewan. Farm life taught him a strong work ethic that he passed on to his children.

Survived by his four children and eight great grandchildren and two great grandchildren
Rob Buchanan; Chris Devon.
Holly Buchanan; Dustin (Great granddaughter-Charlotte), Stephanie, Jessie Dawn.
Pamela Barry; Kendra (Great grandson-Ryker)
Petrina Hobbs; Alex, Alyssa.

Survived by, one of seven siblings, his sister Doris Goodman, Bellville, Ontario.

Occupations included farming, logging, oil rigs, carpentry and throw in a little engineering, using a school geometry set.

He helped build portions of and maintain the High River Hospital for years. He was particularly proud of circular staircase that he engineered and built that went from 3rd floor to the 2nd floor dining room.
His house, yard, vehicles, walker and electric scooter were all modified with his own inventions and they all worked.

He was baptized as a Jehovah's Witness, July 7, 1958.
He loved reading his bible and when he was up against challenges he would say, 'I'll just put it into Jehovah's hands".
He would share his Bible-based beliefs with all he met.

Thanks to all family, congregation and medical personnel who helped Jim, over the years.
