James Thomas Houghton
December 20, 1986 - June 5, 2017
It is with great sadness, the family of James Thomas Houghton announce his sudden passing at the age of 30.
He leaves to mourn his mother Roberta, brother Adam, grandparents Tom and Oni, aunties Donna, Sharon and Karen, uncles Ron, Robbie, and Russell, cousins Paula, Leon, Melissa and Cameron and their families. His special friends Amanda, Kirk, Alex, Paige and Zach and several other friends who loved him dearly and were blessed to have known him. He is predeceased by his father Patrick in 2012.
At James' request, cremation has taken place and there will be no service. He wished that all of his different groups of friends would each gather together to celebrate his life with them and remember him as he was.
Donations in his honour may be made to the Mazankowski Heart Institute U of A or Stollery Children's Hospital U of A.
Special thanks to the U of A Transplant Unit for their care of James over the last 11 years.
