We are honored to celebrate the life of James Henry Rauch Sr., and to pray for his soul in heaven.
He paved the way as the leader of his household, providing for his wife, children and grandchildren. He never did anything for his own glory or gratification.
His career was spent shaping the lives and minds of countless students that revered his strong, yet fair philosophy of teaching.
A devoted husband that cherished his wife for 57 years. Together they built a family enriched with values and morals that will be his legacy.
Dedicated father, present during every aspect of life as a dependable, strong shoulder to lean on. Inspiring discipline with grace and dignity.
Loving grandfather, a calming presence that instilled comfort whenever near. The lessons learned from his clever games and activities will always be fondly remembered.
Enjoying a full life with his family, traveling around the world, a love of hockey, the guitar, clever quips, higher education, poetry, and volunteering were pillars of his life until the very end.
A man who trusted and honored God, who was respected by all that had the pleasure of knowing him. A man to emulate.
He will be loved and adored forever.

I remember fondly a trip through Italy with my late husband, John, Jim, and Flora Lee. Jim's wonderful quiet sense of humor helped keep us all sane throughout the challenges of traveling in another country.
