James "Jim" Baufeldt
Baufeldt, James Robert (Jim)
We are deeply saddened to announce that Jim Baufeldt, beloved father, respected entrepreneur, master millworker and dear friend, passed away on the afternoon of April 4th, 2018, at his home surrounded by family, just as he had wished. He was 81.
Jim is survived by his daughter Heidi Baufeldt, the light of his life, and her husband Roman Altmann as well as siblings Joan Zinn, Lois Howieson and Richard Baufeldt. He is predeceased by his wife Maureen, who passed away in 2011.
Jim will be deeply missed as a local craftsman and entrepreneur, an amusing story teller and patriarch of the family that put Violet Hill, Ontario on the map through several local family-owned-and-operated businesses, including Canadian Country Folk Art, Mrs. Mitchell’s Restaurant and Granny Taught Us How.
The family would like to thank all the caregivers who made it possible for Jim to stay at home for his final months. A private celebration of Jim Baufeldt's life will be scheduled by the family at a later date. “Donations in support of research and treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) at the Lung Association are appreciated.
