ROOS: James “Jim” Gregory (18 year employee of Siemens – Milltronics)

September 23, 1952 – April 11, 2014

Please do not grieve for me as I am now finally “soaring on wings like eagles.” (Isaiah 40:28-31). I fished so many great lakes, I travelled a lot of roads and I made so many great friends. I am blessed. Left to remember me, and my antics are: My mother Micheline Roos (nee: Lacroix); my sister Brenda Roos; my nieces Myka (husband Jens and daughter Matilda), and Tara (Stephen); my children Adam, Andrew, Joel (wife Jessy and daughter Hannah), Josh, James, and Danielle; my wife Krista (nee: Bucholtz); my mother-in-law Barbara Bucholtz and my late father-in-law Leslie Bucholtz; my brother-in-law John (Kim) Bucholtz and many friends and other relatives. I’m now together with my Dad (James Philip Roos, d. 2013). Friends are invited to a memorial reception to be held on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at ASHBURNHAM FUNERAL HOME, 840 Armour Road (just north of Parkhill) at 3 p.m. Visitation with my family from 2 – 3 p.m. If desired, directions to the service, condolences to the family or donations may be made at or by calling 705-740-0444. In lieu of flowers, please feed the birds, plant a tree, adopt a rescue pet or buy a meal for someone in need.

‘Till later, Jimmy

Jim Roos
