09 Jul Thank you Jim
On behalf of the Management and Staff of Central Carriers, we are deeply saddened to hear of Jim’s passing.
As the Manager of Central Carriers (Edmonton) Ltd for almost 40 years, Jim had the opportunity to make an impact on the lives of many people. Jim never wasted a second thinking about whether to help someone. If someone needed help, Jim was always there. You could not ask for a more compassionate business leader. To Jim, it did not matter who you were or what you did; helping was always his way.
Jim’s love of life was always expressed. Two of the ways he did this were the iconic annual Golf Tournament and the Children’s Christmas Party. Many patrons of the Golf Tournament will have fond memories of Jim at this event. This golf event was renamed to the ‘Jim Brodie Classic’ when Jim retired from Central Carriers. It was truly a privilege to share a cigar and beverage with Jim.
The transportation industry has a way of keeping people away from their loved ones and Jim wanted a party where the whole family could participate. The Children’s Christmas Party brought everyone together and fully encompassed the family of Central Carriers. Many special memories from these parties will be shared for years to come.
Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to Linda and Family. Thank you for everything Jim. You will be forever missed.
