James Christopher Salisbury, a proud father, former logger and owner and operator of Powder King Mountain Resort in Northern BC, died unexpectedly on April 16, 2022, from recently developed health issues.

Jim is survived by his wife Hiedi; his children Faith, Hope, Chance, Destiny and Marshall; his brothers Michael and Patrick; his sister Laurie Henne; and his dad Charles. He was predeceased by his mother Dorothy (Schmidt) Salisbury.

Jim was born in Castlegar on July 31, 1967, to Charles and Dorothy Salisbury. He graduated from Stanley Humphries Secondary School in 1985. He moved from Castlegar to Powell River shortly after finishing school and worked for his brothers Mike and Pat as a logger. On May 27, 2002, he married Hiedi Soule in Powell River.

In 2005, Jim and Hiedi purchased Powder King Mountain Resort. A week later they found out they were pregnant with triplets; twins followed in 2010. Family was always the most important part of Jim’s life. He was always smiling and thankful to all around him, blood-related and not. Jim always lived large and sought out adventure.

A service for Jim has not yet been scheduled; details on any gathering will be published at a later date. For those wishing to express condolences, please email Hiedi at hiedisalisbury@hotmail.com and instead of flowers, please make donations in Jim’s name to BC Transplant or BC Cancer.

For those wishing to simply become organ donors in honour of Jim, Hiedi has expressed that is a lovely way to honour his legacy.
