In Loving Memory

Jim “Jöhann” Bepple

We regret to inform friends, family, and rockers of Kamloops area and beyond, that Jim has passed away. His presence and legacy on this planet has been one of love and generosity. He always believed in an open-door policy, and everyone was welcome.

Jim and Sue created their own United Nations among the people invited into their lives. A cold drink and a hot meal (and plates) were the foundations of what they offered anyone who came into their home.

Jim (Dad) is survived, and lovingly remembered, by Sue – his wife of almost 47 years, and by his kids Angela (Brendan), Brent (Jenn), as well as the many dear family members and friends he leaves behind.

I’ll see you at the “End of the Line”

    JIm was a very generous and kind person. I have lots of memories but the best one is how he stepped up to walk my dog for me when I broke my foot. Didn’t even have to ask he just showed up on my doorstep and asked for Taz’s leash. I knew if he made curry or cole slaw, there was always some coming my way.
    Rest in peace my friend….

    Dear Sue, Brent and Angela
    We are saddened and sorry to hear that Jim has passed. Diane and myself along with The Flounders, have such wonderful memories of the parties in Chase with Jim and you. We are honored to have known Jim and the opportunity to play music together. He surely was an awesome guy and musician. Love Denis, Diane and The Flounders.

    Well, it’s all right (all right), riding around on the breeze
    Well, it’s all right (all right), if you live the life you please
    Well, it’s all right, even if the sun don’t shine
    Well, it’s all right (all right), we’re going to the end of the line.

    Dear Sue and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I really don’t know the right words as it was so unexpected. I do hope all the years you shared together can give you comfort with the loss. Lots of strength with the passing days.

    Warm wishes,
