James “Jim” Stewart Brittain passed away peacefully at home on July 15, 2019 at the age of 61 years. Jim was born in and lived his whole life in Central Alberta and was a long serving member of Innisfail’s volunteer community. Since 1989, hundreds of the town’s youth have known him simply as “Coach”. Besides his family, Jim’s life’s passion for the past 23 years was his career as an educational assistant at Innisfail High School where he took great pleasure working with teenagers. Many of his former students, now adults, would often seek out “Mr. Brittain” in public spaces to offer a hand shake, a thank-you and reminisce for a while. He took great pride in seeing the adults, which he had in part, helped them, become. Jim will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 37 years, Barb, their children Candace (Joel) Peterson and Christian (Taylor) Brittain, grandson Emmett Peterson, mother Grace (Gordon) Penner, brother Harvey (Evelyn) Brittain, sisters Carol (Wade) Forsyth and Charlene (James) Zielke, many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Jim was predeceased by his father Ernest in 2001. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 2:00 PM in the Innisfail Middle School Gymnasium. A reception will follow in the Innisfail High School Student Gathering Area. The family invites past and present Cyclones athletes to wear their team wear. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the ALS Society of Alberta. Heartland Funeral Services Ltd., Innisfail entrusted with arrangements. 403-227-0006.

I can't seem to make up my mind on just one memory of Jim, from the day he married my big sister Barb, to the birth of his two children Candace & Christian, Jim was always there when someone was in need of some help, he was the best brother in-law a person could ask for. He meant a lot to me and he always will.

I worked with Jim at IHS for many years and can say with certainty that in all those years I never heard him make a disparaging remark about another human being which is amazing because his clients were a challenge. The students loved Jim because Jim loved his students.
