James Weisbeck 1986 — 2017

James Weisbeck

It is with a heavy heart to announce the sudden passing of James Adam Weisbeck on August 16th 2017. He passed away at home at the age of 31.

James was born on May 27th 1986 in Kelowna.  He lived his life as care free and drama free as possible. He was well known to be quite the artist in the kitchen, as he had a natural talent when it came to cooking and cultivating herbs. One of his favorite things to do was preparing “epic meal times” for his friends. He was also very passionate about the outdoors, pursuing mountain biking, kayaking, camping, or whatever kind of trouble he could find as long as he was with his friends. He had a large and caring heart and has performed several random acts of kindness towards strangers throughout the years. He did not believe in getting hung up on what someone did or didn’t have, but rather was just happy being in the moment. James got along with anyone, but has always held his loved ones close to his heart and always made time for them.  James had a love for metal music. So much in fact, he created a page on YouTube (multi-level metal) in order to ask bands for permission to upload his favorite songs and help those artists promote their music.  He was the shining light in many of our lives and will be dearly missed.

Left to honor and remember James’s memory is his loving common law partner Vanessa Hyson; son Joseph Weisbeck and his mother Michelle Weisbeck; Mother Maria Weisbeck; Grandma Roxanne Derrick; Uncles: David Luggar, Steve Luggar and Mike Palmer; Brother Mike Weisbeck wife Charlene and niece Addison; Doug and Patty; Regan; and his closest friends Tyler Nelson; Erik Heppner; Kevin Erichuk; Nathan Green; Brad Maio; Steve MacLennan; Mary-Jane McLachlan; and Christina Bagg.

We invite James’s family and friends to join in a celebration of life on Saturday September 2st, 2017 at 11am at 3212 Archibald Crescent.  Those who so desire to make a memorial donation to his son Joseph Weisbeck’s education fund in James’s memory can brought/sent to 3212 Archibald Cresecent.

    I did not know James but I was reading this and wanted to leave a few words to his family and friends. I hope that this bible text can provide you with a little bit of comfort and hope as you continue to cope during this difficult time. Take care. John 5:28,29-“Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life…”
