Obituary: Bouquot, James Leroy “Jim”

BOUQUOT, James Leroy “Jim” (Age 77) Died peacefully March 21, 2015 at Valley Hospital in Spokane Valley following a brief illness.

He leaves his son Alan Bouquot; his daughter, Sharon Raymond; grandsons Tyler, Christopher, and Parker; granddaughters Brittney and Fallon; and great-grandson Liam; as well as many friends.

Jim grew up in Colville, WA and spent most of his life living in the Spokane, WA area.

He served four years in the United States Army, worked many years as a miner, and finally as a sanitation worker, from which he retired.

Jim’s passions revolved around the outdoors, shooting, and his love of riding his many Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

He spent much of his free time traveling all over the country on his motorcycle, often with his son at his side.

Jim’s retirement was consumed by his passion for riding his Harley-Davidson, housekeeping and yard work shunned to the dismay of his neighbors who loved him.

Jim lived life the way he wanted and was never one to keep his opinions to himself, often promoting those opinions on his many t-shirts.

His support of veterans, gun rights, and freedom was often expressed on his clothing or bumper stickers and nothing tickled him more than offending those who didn’t agree.

His stubbornness and sense of humor will be greatly missed.

A private ceremony will be held where his ashes will be scattered at China Ben.
