In Celebration of

James Nixon

May 7, 1933 -  August 10, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of James “Jim” Nixon on August 10, 2023 at Mississauga Trillium Hospital.

Jim is survived by Veronica, his wife of 60 years. He is lovingly remembered by his three sons: Ken (Jeanette), Rob (Anne), and Gord (Mary Anne), and his grandchildren Megan, Josh, and his “little man” Filip.

Jim worked for the City of Mississauga, making sure the ice was perfect for all the skaters. His love of driving the zamboni is still remembered and his techniques are still used today.

Jim was an avid sportsman and loved watching all sporting events on television. He enjoyed reading and telling everyone stories from the past. He loved his grandchildren and was thankful to spend time with each of them.

Online condolences may be made through this website.
