Obituary — John James Sorrell

John James Sorrell

Peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. Jim is survived by his loving wife Carolyn (nee Jackson) and his children Michael (Tammy) of Monkland, Sherry (Ian) of Cornwall and Tony (Tina) of Algonquin, his mother Catherine Hogan of Prescott, his sister Judie Morris of Pembroke, his brother Steve (Donna) of Ottawa, his 7 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren who all called him Poppy Jim. He entertained family and friends with great stories such as fishing, hunting, hockey and all the tricks of the trade. Jim is predeceased by his father Levi Sorrell, his step-father James Hogan, his sister Joanne Hogan and his brother-in-law Walt Morris. He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and friends. In following Jim’s wishes there will be no visitation, a private family service will be held at a later date. Jim’s favorite quote was “carry on Canada”. Donations to the Cornwall Hospice or the Canadian Cancer Society would be gratefully acknowledged by the family. Online condolences may be made at
