James (Jim) Lynch ran Jim Super Foto in Cabbagetown for nearly 40 years.
It is with tremendous sorrow that the Family of James (Jim) Lynch announce his passing on Friday, November 20, 2020 at the age of 68 years. Devoted and deeply loved husband of Rose. Cherished and adored father of Jessica and Olivia (Marcus). Loving grandfather of Lorenzo. A caring brother to Michael (Linda) and fun-loving uncle to Steven. The son of late William and Audrey Lynch, Jim’s life in the Toronto Beaches was by all accounts memorable. He attended Monarch Park Collegiate Institute and left the nest at the age of twenty-three to start an exciting life with his partner Rose. Jim displayed a beautiful passion for capturing life through the lens of his camera and later in 1982 started his own storefront residency in Cabbagetown called Jim Super Foto.
Jim’s commitment to his family never wavered even as he found himself working immensely to provide the best life for his family. Eventually he retired at the age of 64 years and enjoyed many wonderful trips and engagements with his wife Rose and family. His charming, caring and funny nature touched the hearts of many, and his compassionate manner was felt by all that crossed his path. Always there to tell a joke, to lend an ear or perhaps say the things that needed saying, Jim was his own force of nature. His outspoken viewpoints and intelligent manner were admirable. He would go out of his way to say hello to strangers and made them feel important. One was always better for having met him. Jim’s indomitable spirit never waned as he left this world. He is already deeply missed. Heartfelt appreciation to the caring staff of Scarborough General Hospital for ensuring his final hours were comfortable and dignified.
In lieu of flowers the family requests for donations be made to the Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre.
