  1. Jim had the kindest heart to people in need. He always supplied me and my family with fish and it was great to catch up on the community news with him and just chat about the river. He will be missed. We will pray for your family in this time of loss. God has a special place for Jim and probably right by a sweet fishing hole!

  2. Jim was a good soul. He never met a stranger. We spent many a Sunday together watching the KC Chiefs and having a great time with friends. He loved to play horseshoes! Jim, Chris and I will truly miss you. See you when we get there. ♡

  3. Bless your heart Jim and may God rest your soul. Prayers for strength for your family during this time of loss.

  4. Jimmy, you have been my friend for 17 yrs. You dated my daughter, what a mess that was. But we got thru it all and remained good friends. I will miss you dearly. Praying for your family’s loss. I love you, brother. Mama D.

  5. Jim was not only a good guy but a great man and an amazing human being. I had the privilege to work with Jim for many years with Dave Bindi Construction and that is also where we started our friendship. Jim and I have kept in contact even though I moved years ago because we had such a strong friendship. I have a heavy heart right now because last time I talked to Jim I was busy and had to cut our conversation short and this is really eating me up. Jim was always in a cheerful mood and ready for a good conversation. I am going to miss my good friend deeply. My condolences to Jims family.

  6. They say true friends go long periods of time without speaking and never question their friendship. Jim and I would not speak for a long time but when we did it was like we were never away from each other. He is a very special person and I will miss him tremendously. I will cherish the memories we made over the years. Love you man!!!!! Mrs. Sandy, Chuck, Nancy and Gail my prayers and thoughts are with you.

  7. My condolences to the family Jim and i had at least the minimum 20 yr friendship and i just seen him a few months ago! He did his best to get me to come over once again on the river! But being married to my current wife made life a little difficult for me to do this! This weighs on me with a heavy heart that i should have not taken life for granted a and i should have went and had a beer or two with him! All in all we remained fiends til the end in which i dont have many left but he was one of them! Rip my good friend apart of me is with you!
