Dear all, 

 

It is with a heavy heart I let you know Jim lost his battle with Multiple Myeloma on Saturday 12th November. 

 

In true Mr O style he fought 110% and was courageous, spirited, humorous, loving, selfless & inspirational to the end. 

 

The Jeep Owners Club was tremendously special to Jim. His number one passion in life was Jeep & he absolutely adored the Jeep community. 

 

If anyone has any stories or photos of Jim to share I would love to hear and see them!

 

When I have finalised the funeral details I will let you know. Anyone who wishes to attend is of course welcome. I am positive Jim would love to watch from above with a huge smile if some Jeeps & Jeepers were able to accompany him on his final journey. 

 

With the team I will endeavour to continue his legacy & make him proud. 

 

Thank you to you all for having such a positive impact on Jim's life. 

 

Love Mrs O & family x

How terribly sad. Deepest heartfelt condolences to Louise, family and friends.
We have the fondest memories that we shall cherish. 
Unfortunately we will be in Spain. Ext week, otherwise we would have been honoured to attend.

We are so saddened to hear this. Jim was a great guy and you both made us feel like the Jeep community was our second home. 

We managed to shift work things around and we will be honoured to be at the funeral. 

Unfortunately we won't be in our Jeep but we would still love to join in the procession. 

 

Much love, Tony and Aneta from Modified Jeeps UK

Able to attend but unfortunately not in Jeep - in for welding, ouch, and MOT. Have posted on the other tread as well.
