James (Jim) Salt
It is with great sadness and regret that we announce the passing of James (Jim) Gordon Salt, of Kingston, Ontario on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at the age of 80. Born July 3, 1938, to the late Henry Stuart and Madeline Maude (Lilly) Salt, in Toronto, Jim was destined to work on the water and, following in his father's footsteps, became the next in a long line of certified First Class Marine Engineers.
He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Joyce Denise (Winstall); children, Megan (Glenn MacKay-deceased), James (Angela Wylie), Mark (Betty Rebelo), and Christine (Darin Viens); brother, Robert Stuart (Edna Mary); beloved grandchildren, Jordan, Josh, Jordyn, Chantal, Ethan, Ella, and Sophia, and more nieces, nephews and cousins to count.
Visitation will be Saturday, 22 June, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. followed by a memorial celebration under the direction of James Reid Funeral Home, 1900 John Counter Blvd., Kingston. www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Jim's name to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
