I went to church with Jim and Darlene and they were my neighbors for a while. I loved them both. Jim was so talented. He posted black and white pictures of the Mississippi River one cloudy day. One faced the South and the other to the North. I commented on his post, " Frame them" or something like that. He showed up at our door (we live an hour and a half away) some time later with both pictures framed. He gifted us with those and they are beautiful treasures. One day he had a friend help him drag up a piece of drift wood from the river that filled the back of the truck and yes, they delivered it to us. He will be missed. One of a kind! Love you kiddos.

One of the best human beings I have come across. Such a great friend. As a new immigrant in the country he was one of the few guys who went out of the way to make me comfortable. I used to enjoy working with him as my Engineering Colleague and spent long hours trying to find solutions to various problems.

Again, he was a great friend and among a short list of people that I would like to meet him in another life.

Good Bye my friend. May your Soul RIP.

Jim was one of the finest, kindest and most knowledgeable men I have ever known and a great friend. From my first day at NIBCO in November of 1974, when I first met Jim, until now, he always did everything he could to help me with anything I needed help with or asked about. He will be sorely missed. May God comfort and bless Jim's family.

It just doesn’t seem right that our dear friend Jim has left us. I’m going to miss seeing him walking each morning, our talks, and most of all, his support and friendship. He was a great advocate for Sans Souci and the Mississippi River and he was a very talented photographer. His legacy will live on!

My God provide his family and friends with the peace and understanding needed to get through these trying times. May we all be comforted knowing that Jim has been reunited with his beloved Darlene.
