James passed away peacefully in Penticton Hospital after a short illness, with his loving wife Elsa “Pat” by his side, on February 20, 2015 at the age of 90 years. Jim was the son of George and Bertha Doherty, born and raised in Summerland and attended school here. He was a well known orchardist and grew apples and cherries for many years. Jim enjoyed going to car shows and collected antique vehicles and farm equipment. He had a remarkable memory of old time Summerland and loved sharing stories of the early days. Jim was a gentle man, a kind and caring husband and step-father. He was predeceased by his first wife Hazel, brothers and sisters: Albert, Ernest, Florence and Alice. Many thanks to Dr. Julien and all the nursing staff at Penticton Hospital. A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at a later date. Memorial tributes may be made to the charity of your choice.
