Jim was a true friend and fantastic uncle. I have many memories of Jim beginning with my childhood. Family gatherings, visits and vacations with Jim and Faye were always very special. We enjoyed playing many rounds of golf in the Springboro area and Virginia. My wife and I will greatly miss Jim but feel very blessed that he has been a part of our life. We love our dear friend and uncle. I’m sure that Jim is currently enjoying a very special place in heaven that God has prepared just for him.

Jim lived a full life. A life full of love for others. A life full of giving of himself in helping others and serving the Lord. Jim and Faye worked together on many projects at the church building and at home. They have been a source of blessing to many others. Jim was a great encourager to me and to others. I, and many others, will remember Jim for his loving, compassionate, and generous heart. Jim will be missed greatly and remembered fondly.

Jim was a dear friend who always had a smile and wanted to know how you were doing. I have lots of great memories with him on the golf course. I admired his ability to not get upset when he hit a bad shot. We often talked about the time a sudden rain storm came up and we were soaked from head to toe. Sure will miss him but our loss will be God's gain. Rest in peace my dear friend.
