Herfkens Family, I am sad to hear of Jim's passing. My first job interview was with Mr. Herfkens for a teaching position at Columbus Jr. High School in 1966. I will always thank him for the opportunity to begin my teaching career there. He was a kind, sincere person who had a positive influence on so many lives, including mine. God Bless.
