Obituary James ( Jim) Washer 1961-2023

Staff and directors of the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation (CLRC), and those involved with CLRC member associations were shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Washer, General Manager of CLRC on January 14, 2023. Jim was in his 62nd year at the time of his passing.

Jim assumed the role of General Manager of CLRC in 2014 after previous experience with 4-H Canada. As Manager he was heavily engaged in communication with member associations, the CLRC Board and served on a variety of relevant industry committees.  

Jim was exceedingly helpful in answering a large volume of questions, listened well to comments from member associations, was a family man and had a deep and abiding love for spending time outdoors in nature. He will be deeply missed by a wide array of friends.
