James Nickerson was employed by Canadian Linen to look after the distribution of clothing at the Hilton. When a few of the 5890 members heard , just before Christmas, he was stricken with cancer they took it upon themselves to “pass the hard hat” amongst union and company employees alike to help him and his wife through this nightmare time.
They raised over $2000 which was passed on to James and his wife Wanda. Through this generosity, to a person who was not “one of their own”, Wanda was able to spend day and night with James through his hospital stay.
James passed away February 16 with his family by his side. Thank you one and all.
