James "Galin" Proctor

May 5, 1942 ~ April 9, 2022 (age 79)

Obituary

Galin passed peacefully at Rotary Hospice House in Prince George. 

Most of his adult life was spent in Fort Nelson & Taylor as a Westcoast employee.  He and Bobbi owned the RV Park in Taylor for 13 years, then moved down the street to his forever desired "Trailer in Taylor."  After retirement, he established Outlaw Pilot & Hotshot, and got to explore all the side roads between Fort Nelson and Fort St. John, as well as fields afar.  He enjoyed prospecting, hunting, ski-dooing, river rafting, river boating, and took up salmon fishing in the Terrace area later in life.  He had the gift of gab and had friends and acquaintances from every walk of life.  He was the "junior" patriarch for his eight surviving siblings as his dad left at an early age.  He ran his last pilot trip in November of 2021 and slowly faded into the sunset.

Galin is survived by Bobbi, his mate of 43 years; 3 sons, Jim, Troy, & Kent and their wives; 2 grandchildren, Karissa & Sean.  He was predeceased by his parents; ex-wife Verna; "husband-in-law" Barry; & his first grandson, Brayden.

His ashes will be interred at the Nelson place at Golata Creek.  An impromptu drop-in will take place on June 11 & 12 from noon until 6:00 each day at 10256-101 Street in Taylor.  Drop by for food, conversation, & beverages.  There will be an open mic from 2:00 to 4:00 on Saturday.  

Expressions of sympathy may be made to Rotary Hospice House, 3089 Clapperton Street, Prince George, BC V2L 5N4 or to a charity of your choice.
