James Wayne Ban Quan

February 1, 1945 - February 5, 2019


James Wayne Ban Quan passed away peacefully in the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 74.  Jim was born in the St. Eugene Hospital on Feburary  1, 1945 to Joseph (Joe) and Byrle Ban Quan.  He was a long time member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.  Jim was also a member of the Royal Canadian Legion for many years.  He was very passionate about his affiliation with all his commitments over the years.  He enjoyed camping and, hand gun shooting for competition.  Then came the age of computers and he learned everything he could about them, working with many programs.  Another of his passions was photography and this led to many interesting photos and the use of PhotoShop or some similar program.

Jim is survived by his wife, Raylene Bayley and four sons; Wayne, John (Sheri), James (Oggy)(Jennifer) and Benjamin (Benji) as well as five grandchildren he was very proud of. Jim also leaves his brother Brian (Dooze).

There will be no funeral service at this time. Those wishing to remember Jim may do so with donations to the Liver Foundation, Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society. Jim will be sadly missed by his loving family and many friends.
