Jim was a warm, charismatic, welcoming, outgoing family man who had a big personality, a great sense of humor & loved being with family & friends.
I have never been around him & not laughed.
He always had something to say whether it was comforting or advice or a story of an adventure he had been on.
He was a great person from a great family.
My condolences go out to his Brothers & Andrea, Amanda & James as well as all the rest of his family, relatives & friends.
He is & always be missed but never forgotten.

The Layman family is saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Patterson. We remember him as a little guy, full of life and adventure. We called him Jimmy and our family often joined up with the Pattersons for fun times at Pigeon Lake - waterskiing and boating and snow mobiles in the wintertime with a big fire for warming up. We extend our sincere sympathy to all the Pattersons and their extended family from long time friends Murray and daughters Dresda and Danielle.

Jim celebrated everything in life, so I'd like to share my own celebration of him.

Jim was a great friend to grow up with... he was outgoing, often inappropriate, loud, and unapologetic if you didn't like his ways or reasons. He would pull out all the stops to help a friend in a scrape (as he did for me more than once), and I could always count on him to have my back.

While he sometimes lead me or others into 'the occasional situation' - they were never so serious that he couldn't talk his way out of it! His argumentative tenacity was something to behold! If he didn't convince you he was right, he'd at least tire you into a sort of stalemate. I'm not sure I ever saw him lose a debate. Jim took big handfuls of life, savoring each moment.

I haven't seen Jim for years, last time was a school function with our daughters. And now I miss him like hell. If he were here listening to me whine, he'd probably call me a numbskull or dumbass and say: "what do you think I've been telling you all this time!"

Rest in peace, my friend. My life is better for having you in it.

Deepest condolences to Amanda, the kids, Terry, Bruce and all the other kin.

Since Jim has been our Business Rep for LL99, he was always available and a pleasure to work with. We’ve had our differences, but the mutual respect was always there. Jim was always ready to listen to you and have those conversations, that usually would turn to hunting. I will miss those conversations at the office…
Rest In Peace my brother

Jim was a good person, caring about "what was right and fair". He also loved to debate, on pretty much any subject.

I knew Jim better from before he became a Union Rep when he worked in the shop and field.

I do not believe I ever laughed so hard when Jim was debating with mgmt why he was doing the speed he was in a field service truck, Jim always had his reasoning and stood up for it.

Great person, gone far too soon, I for sure will miss Jim, Jim had 2 important trade certifications, Welder 1st, then HET Mechanic so he had more opportunities and hopefully would not be laid off as a welder, Jim did very well in both trades, and honorable person and a good person to all, rest well my friend!

I worked with Jim while I was located at D18 WEB 20 years ago. He was a real character and full of laughs, sarcasm and one liners... but a hard worker and did a great job for our customers. We had a few beers together from time to time and shared hunting stories.
I recall one Christmas party (pre-game) in a kitchen that was a heck of a laugh. Still makes me smile.
Condolences to all of the family and friends. RIP Jim
