January 19, 1960 – August 31, 2018

James Bradley “Jim” was born in Bistroff, France, on a Canadian Armed Forces base.  Jim’s father, James Edward, was a member of the R.C.A.F.  Upon return to Canada as a young lad, Jim lived in Chatham, New Brunswick, North Bay, Ontario, ST. Albert, Alberta, and the Edmonton area in his adult life.

Jim was a hard worker and lived a simple life.  He saw the value in taking care of the things he worked hard for.  He also saw the value of a personal phone call on birthdays or other special occasions.  Jim was not a man of indulgence but, one could say that his love of cars was his area of excess.  It seemed as though he had a different car most every time you saw him.  He was the person you went to for advice about buying and selling and was always on the hunt for the next good deal…he took pride in that.  Jim’s love of cars continued into his work life as a driver for a variety of automotive and commercial companies.

Jim is survived by his daughter Chaylene Nicole (Jason) Peterson, grandsons Jax Edward and Eli Christopher, of Kamloops, B.C., who will forever lovingly remember him as “G-Pa”; a name of Jim’s choosing, sisters Sandy (Harry) Hustins of Edmonton, AB. and Sherryl (Jeff) Hustins of Victoria, B.C., and by his brother Ron (Angela) Hustins of Oshawa, ON.  Jim is predeceased by his father James Edward (1994) and mother Charlotte Gwendolyn (2018).

  1. I am so sorry to read of Jim’s passing! I remember Jim as a young man who was a friend to everyone. My daughter Brenda was part of a youth group that Jim was a member if I remember correctly. During this difficult time I pray that you and your family will find comfort and peace in the fact that Jim is now in the arms of Jesus and one of those days you and family will join the chorus of the Redeemed and be reunited forever with those who’ve gone before you. Love and God’s blessing!

  2. So sad that you have left this earth, but you are headed to a better place with those who have gone before and loved you dearly. To a good friend that I only recent re-met. You will be truly missed. The Barber/Paluck family.

  3. Our deepest condolences on the death of Jim jr. It is with a saddened heart I read his obituary. He is gone but not forgotten. Has joined Mom and Dad with their Saviour. Hugs and prayers to your family.

  4. My earliest memory of him was playing the snare drum in the band. My thoughts and prayers and love as well as those of my parents go out to Ron, Chaylene and family.

  5. Charlene, Sandy, Sherryl and Ron…it is with heavy hearts to hear the news. I have been Jim’s neighbour for a decade. We have shared the same love of cars. I have counted on his expertise in the past. He was generous and kind with a meticulous eye for a well manicured lawn, washed car and organized garage. When his mother passed away he took care of many things including the distribution of assets. I am in possession of Charlotte’s “ghetto blaster” complete with a double cassette players :). As I work on my cars and play music from Charlotte’s radio in the future, I will always be reminded of Jim’s kindness and generosity. He was an avid member of our community fire pit and well loved in our community.

  6. With deep hurt in our hearts we offer deep condolences to our entire Hustins Family on the untimely passing of our very much loved and respected Nephew,James(Jimmy) Hustins. Loved him from the day we first saw him upon his arrival back home to Canada.He was always quiet and reserved but gave you his full attention during our many conversations about many different subjects as his way of showing his respect for the conversation. He is gone too soon from us to be welcomed by his Lord & Saviour, Jesus. This world has lost a premier Citizen . May you rest in peace for eternity till we meet again in Heaven.
    Uncle Fred & Aunt Elsie.

  11. Sandy, Sherry, Ron and families,
    It is with a breaking heart I offer you our sincere condolences on Jim’s passing. We had to call on your family’s help when tragedy struck our family the first year we were in Alberta. The kindness and love shown us by your parents, and yes the friendship of you kids to our kids will never be forgotten. You all grew from the teen years to adults together, celebrating your different occasions together. Life with its twists and turns has taken you down many paths and many miles apart but it can’t erase the memories made with our families. Jim was such a kind, steady young man who could go where the action was in his teens but didn’t take part, just there as a friend. You are all going to miss his gentle presence. May the peace and comfort of the God he served lighten your way until you are united again with Jim and your parents and to join them in adoration of your loving Heavenly Father.
    Love Jean and Bryce Rowsell

  12. Chaylene, Jason, Jax and Eli,
    It is with shock and deep sadness that I read of your dad’s passing. Jim was one of our son’s first friends when we arrived in St Albert 41 years ago. A thoughtful and upright young man with whom we made many great memories. Jim was always so proud to show pictures of you as a baby Chaylene and then the boastful grandpa when Jax and Eli were born . As you grieve your earthly loss hold unto the assurance of the resurrection that He is now with the Saviour he served and that you will meet again. As the bend in this road hides him from our sight he is being united with his beloved mom and dad on the other side of the bend. Our love and prayers are with you.
    Jean and Bryce Rowsell
