Obituary for James Edgar Row
The world lost a guardian of greatness on November 15th, 2017, when James Edgar Row (Jim, Jimbo, Papas) passed away unexpectedly. James is survived by his adoring and accomplished children Brendan, Kimberly, and Meredith, his grandchildren, who were his inspiration and light of his life these past few years, Nathan, and Jade (with a third grandchild arriving imminently), and son-in-laws Ryan, and Steven who were as near and dear to him as his own children. James also leaves behind his Wolf Pack (Terry, Paul & Bryan), his close cousin Jackie, his Aussie Family of Stuart, Cherie, Janis & Phil.
Always a Gentleman, Jim would have us mention the good years with his former wife of many years, Judith Noble who passed a few years ago
Tragically, James’ brother John just passed away a few months ago. James will be reunited with his brother, as well as his father (Jack Row) and mother (Barbara Jean Row) at the Row family plot in Brockville, Ontario.

Jim had an illustrious career in business development and sales, culminating in senior leadership positions with Johnson & Johnson that took he and his family across the globe. His legacy and greatness in the art of selling lives on through his children. His mantra "Sales should never be a dirty word" will not be soon forgotten.
