It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of James Alfeo Bortolon on May 6, 2021. The life of any party, Jamie enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening, and camping with the Arrow Lake crew. His career as a truck and coach mechanic left a lasting impression on co-workers and customers, most recently at Erb Group. Jamie brought happiness and laughter with him wherever he went. A great storyteller, fishing partner and everyone’s favourite drinking buddy. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 34 years Franca Bortolon, his sons Jamie Jr., John and Cory, grandchildren Damon and Desmarie, by his sisters, numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Johnny and his sister Rosie. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In honour of Jamie’s memory, donations can be made to the Thunder Bay District Humane Society or any animal rescue organization of your choice. Online condolences may be made at

I send my deepest condolences and prayers to all who loved James. We chummed around as teens back in the early 70’s. We camped out a lot on Rabbit Mountain. He had this little dog named Freddie who went missing for a few weeks. We were roaming around in thick bush when all of a sudden Freddie showed up out of nowhere. All spunky and excited. Good memories. We will see him again when we cross over. God Bless
