Pat, we were shocked to hear of Jim’s passing. Although we never understand why a loved one is taken from us, God will help you to weather the storm of his loss.

Dear Pat my thoughts and prayers are with you. Our God has called home a terrific guy who was generous with his talents for making the love of Jesus visible. It was a privilege and an honor to work with Jim doing just a small part of the many things he was involved to glorify our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Pat, you and Jim made a great team. Stay Strong.
Chris Thompson

Pat and kids, I pray for you that God will support you during this big loss. Jim was such a fun guy and so full of life. He was a strong believer and served the Lord his whole heart. I miss him as we all in Central College Choir do. God Bless you.

I pray that God will be with you Pat. What a blessing Jim was to all of the lives that he touched. I mostly liked the way he would joke around and the respect and love he showed to you.

Ed Goldsmith - Nov 8, 2015

So sorry to hear that Jim has passed on so early in life. I cannot remember a time when I did not know Jim. So many early memories growing up in Central College, and at the Presbyterian church. My condolences to the family, knowing you also have many great memories of time with Jim.

Mark and Judy - Nov 8, 2015

Although we only knew Jim from our “reunions” at Granville, it was easy to see what a great person he was. Our condolences to Pat.

Millard Pope - Nov 7, 2015

I’m so sorry to read about Jim’s passing. May God keep and bless you during these trying times.

Dana Stahlman - Nov 7, 2015

A man that I always admired as a great family man. His devotion to support of his wife and family should serve all of us. I knew him mostly from visiting Jim and his wife Pat who was keeping bees. Jim, although not really into beekeeping always showed Pat his support by getting into hives of bees and working at her side in almost every activity required.
May God Bless this family in time of need.

Susan & Johann - Nov 6, 2015

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you! We are never prepared for the emptiness we experience when someone so dear leaves us. God is faithful, loving, and so very good; He will continue to sustain you.
Love to you and your family, Susan and Johann
