First, Prayers for Jim's Family. I worked with Jim while he served this great republic at the 181st FW. Jim worked in CE and I was the Munitions Storage Area Supervisor. Jim was always warm and friendly. He will be missed. Jim save me a seat at the council fire as I will join you some day.

My wife and I were stationed with Jim at Suwon AB Korea from 1988-1989 and we became instant friends. After we all returned to the States, we kept in frequent contact. Jim was a great friend but an even better husband, dad & grandpa! The Veling family lost a part of us but we know you are with Jesus in a better place.

God Bless you and your family.

My heart goes out to the Huff family. Sharon and Jim were the best neighbors to my aunt and uncle when their son was diagnosed with cancer. I remember Jim and how proud he was of his corvette. He had a great sense of humor.

Jim was such a kind and caring individual. He was a Garfield classmate and it sure was rewarding to reconnect after we retired and moved back to Terre Haute. His friendly smiles and friendly ways will be missed. May the family gain comfort from knowing how many of us appreciated his legacy.
Sincerely,
The Dodsons

Uncle Jim was such a caring and sweet man. I remember when grandma brought us back for the summer and he took us to sky king to go up on a plane. It was such a huge thrill!!! I will miss him dearly!

My heart is so broken and my eyes full of tears over Jim's passing. I meet Jim when I was 14, now I am 59, and Jim was always available to talk to, showing up for visits, or events thru the years. The Huff family holds a special place in my family hearts and our thoughts and prayers are with the Huff family. Thank you Jim for having such a positive influence in my life.
