Vale James (Jim) Finn

Vale James (Jim) Finn – RWC Badge No. 311

On Saturday 08 August 2020, we celebrated the life of James (Jim) Finn Born 23 December 1934, who passed away 07 May 2020 aged 85 years.

In his youth, Jim served as an Able Seaman in the Royal Australian Navy; responsible for essential repairs and maintenance to ship hulls, deck and cargo.

Jim was also an active member to the Hero’s Hill Sub Branch and when this branch folded, he was instrumental at establishing the cenotaph where it stands today. Anzac and Remembrance Day services have been held there for the past 6 years and Jim has attended each one, despite impending illness, to recite the Ode.

An active Revesby Workers’ Club member (Badge No. 311); joined 20 November 1963, just one year after the club officially opened. He was avid supporter of the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs; acknowledge by the club for this ongoing support with Life Membership.

Held in high regard by the Revesby Workers’ Board, it is only befitting that Jim’s service was the first held at the cenotaph and that a plaque acknowledging his contributions be positioned there.
