MATHERS, Jim - Peacefully with family by his side at University Hospital on Friday, June 7, 2019, William James Mathers of London age 91. Beloved husband of the late Tanis, nee Kell (2002).

Jim was a man who valued education, intelligence, athleticism and integrity. These values were exemplified in his family life, his career as an educator (almost exclusively at Medway High School), an active church life (at Robinson United Church), and his athletic pursuits (he excelled at running, Masters Track & Field, badminton and hockey). He loved his cottage (especially when he had a fish on his line) and used it as a place for his family to stay connected.
