My dad was the smartest man I know. He touched many lives and did a lot of things for a lot of people. We miss him dearly.
We will have a memorial service for him on Saturday June 22 at St Stephens Lutheran Church in El Dorado Hills at 11 am. If he touched your life in some way please feel free to come and celebrate his life with us.

My condolences to his family at this time of this major loss. I teach in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the California State University, Sacramento since 1982. I had an opportunity to know Jim since then. He was a role model to me and an example of what it to be a great professor. I asked him once how he got so high evaluations from students. He replied. "It is all in the enthusiasm that you put into it". It revealed to me how much he liked being if front of students. That was so much like him. Over the years I have become convinced he was right.
