Chemspec of Canada President James "Jim" Darling died July 7, four days after suffering a heart attack while playing golf.

The sixth generation to run Ontario, Canada-based Hunnisett Chemicals, Darling, born July 21, 1954, was the beloved husband of Célyne (née Beaudoin); father of Jessica, David and Geneviève; son of Ken and Barbara and brother of David.

Darling's delightful sense of humor will be missed by Célyne's parents Maurice and Emilienne, his sisters-in-law Jocelyne, Michelle, Josée and Joanne, brothers-in-law Jean, André, Michel, and his many nieces, nephews and friends. He loved coaching kids' hockey and knew his way around the rinks of Toronto and beyond.

Donations in memory of Jim Darling may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 1920 Yonge Street, 4th Floor, Toronto ON M4S 3E2.
