Midland Councillor Jim Downer
Listen to this article

It is with a heavy heart that I share the loss of Councillor, former Deputy Mayor and Mayor Jim (James) Downer. Jim selflessly served the Midland community with pride and distinction for almost 30 years as a dedicated community leader. Jim’s service to Midland is legendary. It has been an honour and privilege to have known and worked with Jim over the years to keep Midland moving forward.

Councillor: 1995-1997, 1998-2000, 2018-2022, 2022-2026
Deputy Mayor: 2001-2003, 2004-2006
Mayor: 2007-2010

I ask that you keep Dawn and the entire Downer family in your prayers as they mourn the loss of their husband, father and grandfather. More details about visitation and funeral arrangements will follow in the coming days.

Rest in peace Jim.

A celebration of life, including a Masonic funeral ceremony, will begin at 1pm on Saturday July 13th at the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre.
