Our thoughts and prayers to Jim's family. Always enjoyed talking with him when we met somewhere. He will be missed.
I first met Jim when I worked at Cardinal. He was such a kind and friendly guy, always had a smile. I would see him around town and friendly as ever. He will be greatly miss by so many people. Our condolences to his family.
Always love those after school visits with Jim, he truly helped make Cardinal a happier place for the kids and staff. We'll miss running into him with his gang at the Pub. Take it easy now, Jim....
Broken hearts for this great man, everyone’s friend, who will be sorely missed.
At a loss for words as I think of how Jim impacted so many lives and is a loss to his family and all the many friends. Once you encountered Jim, you were a friend. Impossible not to love. One of a kind. He will be missed so deeply by so many. We were blessed to have him walk among us on earth and now may he continue to shower his blessings on us from us above. Sympathy and prayer to all!

VERY SORRY FOR UR LOSS
So sorry to the family, Jim will be missed.
Sorry for your loss.
Thoughts and prayers for all of you. There was never a time when I reached out to Jim for "lock help" that he did not go out of his way to be of service--always so very helpful and just a very nice man to visit with. Our heartfelt condolences.
Jim and I grew up together in Andrew. We were first cousins, however, Jim and I were like brothers. Jim was 6 months older, and I wanted mom to lie, so I could go to school with Jim..
That of course, did not work. Jim decided in grade school that he wanted to go into the navy, which he did. The navy was something Jim did not like, and was glad to get out.
We kept in touch all these years, and each time we got together, we had a reminded story to bring up, with a lot of laughs.
Jim, you will be missed and thought about for years to come.
From one veteran to another, I RENDER YOU A FINAL SALUTE.
Cousin Rich Sommers

Always remembered Jim with a smile on his face and a good laugh when he delivered my fuel oil.. even when he gave it up, he was still the same friendly person. will miss seeing him out and about.. God is getting a good angel.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim's family. We have over fifty plus years of very fond memories. Fun times at Manderscheid's in Andrew, all the card parties, fire department events, and so many more. Jim was a great man and a better friend. Pretty sure he had the key to unlock heavens gate. RIP dear friend.
