Abraham (Jim) Wall
1972 - 2020
Jim Wall passed away suddenly on Sunday, April 12, 2020 in his garage next to his beloved Jeep and our dog, Lou.
Jim was born on September 5, 1972 and was raised in Mexico, Morden and Reinfeld. Being raised in a family of nine kids, Jim was always surrounded by siblings and with many other kids from the village. Jim was quiet, shy and had a quirky sense of humour. He got a kick out of tormenting others but was always known as the nice guy who would help anyone out if they needed. He had a very kind heart. On June 8, 2000 Jim became a dad to Shaelynn. Shae had a special place in Jim’s heart. No matter the distance between them, Jim always wondered and worried what she was up to or how she was doing. He always enjoyed their time together and learning new ways to connect. Jim loved Jeeps! And it drove him nuts if a new Jeep was in town and he hadn’t met the owner yet especially if it had modifications. Summer of 2002, Amanda had bought a modified Jeep, and soon after, Jim knew the owner and on September 17, 2005 Jim and Amanda were married. On January 24, 2006 they welcomed Little Miss Madisyn. As if a new baby wasn’t busy enough, Jim and Amanda started fostering children in which they made a home for several little ones over two years. Jim and Amanda spent many years apart of the Manitoba Mud Racers group going from mud bogs to mud bogs, Jim loved meeting new people and making lifelong friends along the way. As Madisyn got older, it was time to change the pace, the mud truck was sold; and a camper was bought. Camping became a highlight for Jim, he loved fishing, being out on the boat, sitting around the fire, and a good long camper nap. Homemade Camping Peanut Buster Parfaits and Peach Pie Frys were always a favourite. You could always count on Jim for having the coffee on before the sun was up. He enjoyed camping with friends, and hearing about others day as he often missed activities due to naps, but he would always say those were the best weekends spent. Madisyn, Amanda and Jeeps were Jim’s World. No matter what Madisyn was doing, what sport she was playing or what her mark was in school, he was proud. Travelling from rink to rink all winter long, he knew which one had the best fries and of course, it was Manitou. They spent many hours in the yard playing catch, practicing batting and pitching….until she hit him in the eye. They shared many passions together, fishing, archery, animals especially cats, driving quads and they share that same quirky sense of humour and of course that ‘Need for Speed’. Jim always had a project on the go, sometimes he was told ‘this one ya gotta sell’ and he usually agreed, but that followed quickly with a new project. ‘The Velocity Tank’ was his most recent project. Its been a labour of love, he has enjoyed researching, watching the progress, tinkering, and changing things to always make it better and faster. Of course, no project is ever completely done.
Jim will be deeply missed by his wife, Amanda, daughters, Madisyn and Shaelynn, parents, Abe and Elizabeth Wall, siblings, Mary and Pete Hildebrandt, Pete Wall, John and Lori Wall, Liz and John Wall, Tina and Al Derksen, Sadie and Mark Enns, Cornie and Mary Wall and Bob Wall and Sabrina, and 25 special nieces and nephews along with their spouses and children. Jim will also be missed by Amanda’s family, Brad MacDonald, Ruth and Ray Windsor, Melissa and Garrett, Colton, Cali, Cyson and Cynlee Graham, Hugh and Rose Morrow and several extended family members and friends who are as special as family.
