LANGILLE: James Edward “Jim” of Belleville

Posted by on February 27, 2017

Langille, James Edward “Jim”, passed away at home on Friday, February 24, 2017, in his 73rd year. He will join his beloved wife Nancy Jane (Snookums) Langille who passed away March 20, 2015, in her 70th year. Dear Father of Morgan Langille, of Belleville, and Brent (Sheryl, his favourite daughter in-law) Langille of Tilbury. Dear grandfather of his favourite grandsons Zander and Jagger Langille. Dear bother of, Margaret (Garfield) Westlake of Delta BC, and Jean (John) Chuby, of Windsor. Jim was predeceased by his parents, the Late Cecil and Fyfe Langille, as well as his oldest sister Sylvia Langille (October 10, 1954).

With a wonderful life that began on October 9, 1944, Jim spent much of his young life moving around central and eastern Canada due to his father’s work.  This taught him how to rapidly become friends with just about anyone he met, which he carried forward through his adult life.  Jim spent his youth outdoors in Scouting (likely to get away from his sisters) and became a Queen’s Scout, from there he transitioned into lifeguarding.  Working on the 7-year plan in high school, he met his lifelong love – Snookums.  With his fondness for school, Jim attended the University of Guelph, but decided that agronomy was not for him, and he pursued a life of sales.  He sold the idea of marriage to his beloved Nancy, and they married July 19, 1969.  They started their married life in Toronto and gave birth to their first (but not best) son, Morgan Carl in 1974.  With Morgan, they decided that big city life was not for them, and they moved to Corbyville.  From Morgan, to moving to a giant fix-it-yourself farm house, to Brent James in 1975 (Perfection! Brentsy-poo-pie-kins), life only got busier from there (even Bernadette couldn’t slow the little ones).  With dabbling in gardening and calf raising, Jim and Nancy learned that ‘farming’ was not for them, but life in Corbyville was for them, until 13 years later they moved into Belleville for their teenage boys, where they spent the rest of their lives.  Jim spent approximately 20 years as a traveling salesman after moving to Corbyville.  At 52 years young, Jim had to refocus his carrier path to continue to support his family, and he opted to continue in sales as a Certified Financial Planner, and he never looked back.  Jim loved to pass advice along to people, and this new occupation enabled him to talk to people, give them advice, and earn an income while doing so.  With retirement, but not full retirement, at 69 years old Jim decided he wanted to do acting as he thought he needed a pay raise, so why not work for free, good logic he thought.  Jim fully retired from financial planning in December 2016 and was looking forward to a life of volunteerism as an actor and full-time play – golf, skiing, exercising, driving his old car (ironic as it was younger than him) and mostly spending time with his friends.

During Jim’s storied life he encountered many people whom he became friends with, from all walks of life, both male and female, his own age or younger than him.  Most of these friends stayed his friends from the time they met Jim until now.  Some have been friends for so long that Jim’s own children refer to them as aunts and uncles.  Other friends are still young enough that he has recently held their babies or discussed their future plans/ambitions with them. Still yet, there are all the other friends that are so numerous.  Jim loved people, he loved talking to them, the more he could talk with them, the better.  Jim routinely would say: “The true value of something/someone, is the conversations you get out of it/them.” – no one person has gifted so much toilet paper just to get a good conversation rolling.

May Jim’s life be remembered by all the wonderful people he created relationships with.  He’d only ask that each of us remember to experience something new, new is fun.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Steele Funeral Home, Moira Street Chapel, 30 Moira Street West, (613-968-2273). The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Friday, March 3, 2017 from 11:00 am until service time at 1:00 pm. A ‘Celebration’ of Jim’s life will take place at 1:00 pm in the Steele Chapel, and will be followed by a time of refreshments, fellowship and sharing of memories of Jim at the Steele Family Centre adjacent to the funeral home. The interment will take place on later date for immediate family at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford.

Memorial Donations to the Quinte Humane Society or to Gleaners Food Bank would be very much appreciated by the family.
