James Ernest Hartley, MSc’63

On October 31, 2013, after a brave battle with Alzheimer’s, James Ernest Hartley died in Calgary with the same grace with which he had lived. He leaves his wife, Milly, his four daughters and their families, and eight grandchildren. Jim was born in Ogema, SK, and finally settled in Calgary, working for Parks Canada Historic Sites Branch until his retirement in 1997. Jim never stopped learning and had several degrees including a BSc in Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan, an MSc in Community and Regional Planning from UBC, and an MBA from the University of Calgary. Jim developed a keen sense of community service as he moved around the country and was a staunch Roughriders fan.
