  December 21, 1955 – November 16, 2021

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our loving father, James Kenneth Lamoureux on November 16, 2021, age 65, at the Grace Hospital.


He is survived by his three children, Tony Lamoureux (JoAnne), David Lamoureux (Kelly), and Nicole Fraik (Garry); grandchild Christopher; sisters, Gail and Donna (Marcel); as well as many nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by parents Sidney Alcide and Rose Gladys; and his brother Rennie.


James was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba and then moved to Edmonton, Alberta in 1988-89. He had a career in a mechanical shop where he built radiators. James moved back to Winnipeg after many years where he decided to settle and plant his roots.


James had a passion in his younger years for fast cars and racing. He lived a fast lifestyle always enjoying life to the fullest. He made many friends in his travels no matter where he went.


James loved to poke and tease everyone near, he had a fun-loving heart, liked to keep things light and alive. He was always a joker and liked making people laugh. He was a wonderer at heart.


James always showed compassion and care for the people around him, lending them a hand whenever needed. He wasn’t a man who built who he was on material things he was known for his big heart and gentle soul. He had a fun-loving spirit and loved being outdoors hunting, fishing and golfing with his sons. He loved camping and made many memories out at English Brook. He taught the love of gardening to his daughter, although she can never keep a house plant alive, she has the green thumb for her vegetable garden like her dad.


James loved to get up, jump on his bike and do errands for anyone who needed help in his apartment block.


He had a fiery spirit even in his last moments making funny jokes to make us smile even in the toughest of was his gift to us. He fought a hard fight to give us a few extra moments together.


He was very proud of us kids in everything we did and were just as proud of him for the love he gave us and everyone near. He was a kind soul that never wanted anything in return, just to make people happy.


James’ generosity and fun-loving spirit will forever be missed but never forgotten.


We would like to thank all the staff at the Grace Hospital for the extra moments we were able to share with our dad.
