Obituary: James Allan Vennard – July 27, 2022

James Allan Vennard passed from complications due to leukemia on July 27, 2022 surrounded by his loved ones.

Jamie was born in Windsor, Ontario to Orland and Jean (Campbell) Vennard.

Jamie met the love of his life at a New Years party and the moment he laid eyes on her, he knew she would be the one. He was the kind of man who always had a smile on his face, loved his family fiercely and would do anything for a friend. After many years, two children, lots of trips with friends and his love, he passed peacefully in his sleep at Grand River Hospital. He will be survived by his wife soulmate, Tracy (Leah) Vennard, his son Daniel Vennard, his daughter Rachel Kavelman and husband Vince Kavelman and their daughter Aeris Kavelman, his brother Robert Vennard, sisters Mari Vennard and Lanny Bingham, his nieces and nephews Carter Vennard, Brooke, Bailey, Brie and Ken Bingham. Jamie is predeceased by his mother and father and niece Nyssa Findlay.

Jamie will be interred in the family plot located at Saugeen Shores Cemetery. The family aks that anyone who would like to pay their respects attend the memorial barbeque on August 14, 2022 in Southhampton at their family cottage from 1-4 pm.
