MessageRhonda, Rick and Laurie

I was so sad to hear about Jim. He taught be how to be an humble teammate and I will never forget that. Jim was my 1st tennis doubles partner with the MHS varisty tennis team. Also enjoyed playing softball with him too. And visiting him at his house by the river was also a hoot! He will be missed and may he rest in peace. you all are in my prayers.

MessageJim was an uncle figure to me as I grew up. In the third grade he assisted me in writing my very first love letter to a boy that liked. Jim attended many of our family events and was always swinging me around whether it be at the lake or during softball games. Jim is and always will be dearly missed. I will definitely be at the memorial to cherish his memories.

MessageMy deepest sympathy to Jim’s family and friends. I worked with Jim at the West Dakota Radio Network. He made me laugh every day! We didn’t always work on air together but when we did we had so much fun and a genuine respect for each other. He had a wonderful voice and laugh! I never saw him without a smile. He made a lasting impression with so many...he certainly did with me!
