James "Jim" Robert Tolin, Jr.

August 24, 1949 — May 30, 2022

Lynden, WA


James Robert “Jim” Tolin, Jr., age 72, of Lynden passed away in Bellingham Monday, May 30, 2022, after a long and hard fought battle with Parkinson’s disease.  For 20 years, Jim handled the disease with grace and dignity.  He provided all of us the privilege for a long good bye.

Jim is survived by his wife of 45 years LouAnn Tolin; his mother Mae Tolin; his sister Nancy Tolin; three adult children, Jeff Smith, Lisa McNelly, and Shawn Smith; and three grandchildren, Enzo, Jamie, and Luca.

Jim lived life to the fullest and did it his way.  He owned and operated Punctual Transportation, Inc., an intrastate trucking company and later Travel Agents International in Bellingham, Washington.  Never one to be idle, both businesses provided Jim the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people in his travels.

Jim had many activities he enjoyed including golf, working on his 1968 Charger, but most of all traveling with his wife in their RV and visiting grandchildren.
A Celebration of Jim's life will be at Trinity Lutheran Church, 119 Texas Street, Bellingham, WA 98225, on Friday, July 1, 2022 at 2:00pm.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Whatcom Hospice House.
