Robert James Ginther

September 9, 1942April 28, 2021

Robert James Ginther known to most as Jim, has lost his battle to cancer. One of ten children born in 1942 in Kansas City, Missouri. After exploring much of the world, he eventually made his way to the Valley in the ‘70s and started an air-conditioning and heating business that he owned and operated for 40 years.

He was such a presence and undoubtedly the most interesting person in the room. Anyone who crossed his path was sure to have had a good laugh. A man who endured so much pain and suffering wouldn’t think twice before putting someone else’s needs before his own. He epitomized living life to the fullest and has left us with many valuable life lessons that leave us eternally grateful.

Survived by his own tenacity, grit, and strong will - he leaves behind one daughter, two sons, three step-daughters, and his adored grandchildren.

May he Rest In Peace as he so deserves.

We will never forget you, your stories, your jokes, and your big heart.
