Jim Saddle Obituary, Death Cause – When we first learned the news, I was immediately overcome with a tremendous degree of sadness upon finding that Penmaen Labour Councillor Jim Saddler had passed away. I found out that he had been a longtime member of the Labour Party. Jim came to my advise surgery in Oakdale not too long ago in order to carry on a conversation with me on a wide range of topics, and he did so during his visit. His excitement for his electoral district and his most recent report on the local issues that are hurting his neighborhood came across fairly well. Both of these topics are important to him and his community.
The happiness that Jim experienced upon learning that bowling will once again be played at the Oakdale Recreation Ground was contagious, and it quickly spread to everyone who was in close proximity to him. The following week, the Caerphilly County Borough Council will host free family bowling taster sessions in Oakdale. The council is going to be the one to host these sessions. These symposia and workshops are scheduled to take place at some point in the foreseeable future. I have high hopes that Jim’s hard work will be rewarded with success, and I anticipate that a significant number of people will take part in the event.
In addition, I have a great deal of faith that Jim will be successful as a direct result of the efforts that he puts forth in his work. During this terrible time, I will continue to keep Jim’s family and friends, who are going through this difficult situation, in my thoughts and prayers as they go through this ordeal. There is no question in my mind that Jim will be remembered fondly not only by his ward colleague Councillor Roy Saralis but also by everyone else who had the privilege of calling him a friend throughout their time together. This is something that I have no doubt about at all.
