For short intermittent periods, over three years, I met Cap. Jim Ewart, a kind gentleman with a refined sense of humor and task master with high professional standards at our last three Company Of Master Mariners AGM's in N.Vancouver, St.John NB and Capital Region respectively. I noticed that whenever there were gaps with information logic and analysis by other CMMC Board Members at our meetings; Jim sprang to fill the void with good detailed suggestions, which were for the most part , followed up. Jim, with great effort and the assistance of Robbin, created a much needed, fully comprehensive, manual of Practices and Procedures for the Company Of Master Mariners Of Canada; a lasting epitaph to the memory of Jim and his professionalism and great teamwork work ethic. Jim will be sorely missed.
So saddened to learn of Jim's sudden passing. Ever since we first met him almost 42 years ago, I appreciated his opinion and enjoyed his outlook in life. Jim was a well respected Officer in the Canadian Coast Guard Fleet. He made a great contribution to the safe and effective operation of all the vessels under his command and fortunately I knew him not only as a fellow Officer..... but also as a friend. My sincere condolences to Robin, Adrienne, Samantha and all his extended family.
Such shocking news to hear of Jim’s passing. My heartfelt condolences go out to Robbin and family💖. Robbin you are in my thoughts and prayers. Thinking of the lovely night we enjoyed with you both in Palm Springs!
May he Rest In Peace.
I am so deeply saddened to learn of Jim’s passing. He was such a generous man, quick to offer help with his hands, his advice and in so many other ways. I’ll miss you Jim, but I’m happy to have had you as a friend. My sincerest condolences to Robbin, Adrienne, Samantha and to all his family.
I have to say I was shocked and saddened to hear of Capt. Jim's passing. Like him, I served with the Canadian Coast Guard for 38 years and in those years certain shipmates always stand out and Capt. Jim certainly was one of them. I will always remember and cherish our many discussions on the bridge of the CCGS George R. Pearkes and the topics were always good for a great laugh and would rival any debate held in the House of Commons. I truly believe he would intentionally start a discussion knowing all to well that there was no winning the argument with him and that look he would give would say it all. Those were and always well be great memories. I truly enjoyed serving as an Officer under his command and he always made me feel that my opinion and approach to duty mattered. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Captain Jim Ewart was wonderful and gem of person. He mentored me through many things in the marine industry and most importantly in everyday life. You are truly missed Captain Jim...
Sincere condolences and may his soul rest in peace.
