James Allen Bartindale was called to serve in World War II in October of 1942. He trained in Chatham, Ontario and was stationed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada’s North Atlantic area, under regiment #A602863, rank of gunner. He was relieved of his duties in February 1946. Before Jim’s years in the service, he was employed by Ingersoll Machine & Tool Company as a machinist. When Jim returned from the service he worked at various jobs from Tolson Lumber Company to Ingersoll Cheese Company to Borden’s Milk Company, then on to construction work on the Governors Road, then working his way north to Kenora area to help construct the Trans Canada Highway. Jim then found employment in Sudbury at Inco, where he worked briefly in the mines, and eventually finding his way to becoming a millwright where he worked until he retired at age 65. A colourful character until the end. (taken from his obituary in the Sentinel Review of Thursday, January 28, 2010, in his 89th year)
