Sometime between 11am and 3pm on Saturday,my brother-in-law passed away in his sleep at home. It was completely unexpected. He lay down for a nap and never woke up. He leaves behind a wife, 2 grown kids from his first marriage and a 6-year-old and a 1-year-old from his second. He was 51, with no major medical history. Results are still pending, but it looks like a brain aneurism.

Edward James (Jim) Wood was a long-time bass player around the Hamilton area, though for the last few years he was concentrating more on his new family than playing out. We still got together for monthly jams, though. He was also heavily into Celtic music and wrote some beautiful stuff in his home studio.
He really was a "tell me what key it's in and I'll handle it" kind of bass player, as well as no slouch on guitar and keyboards. There was very little he couldn't tell you about Cubase either.

Please remember him in your prayers if that's your thing. Once the dust settles, me and the rest of the band will be putting on a musical tribute/Irish Wake kinda thing for him.

Hug your kids, folks, you just never know.

I offer my condolences to you and the rest of the family... at least he didn't suffer.

I wish for strength and courage for you during this difficult time.

Condolences to you and the family. That's terrible news and something that we just can't prepare for. Keep your family close over the next few months.

Wow, talk about a shock to the system eh?


My condolences. As you so rightly stated, you just never know. We make plans for next week or next year or what we'll do when the kids move out but you can be gone in a blink of the eye.


Planning is good, but don't wait until later to tell people you love them (or to F%#k off if that's the truth).

Sorry for your loss.
