So sorry for your loss. Jim was a special man. He will be missed. Prayers for your family.
I will sure miss Jim. He always had a smile for everyone no matter if I saw him in church or in WM. So very Sorry for his family. Prayers for y’all.
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.
We are so sorry for the loss of Jim Brown. He was a great guy whom we had many conversations, mostly laughs. Prayers for the family.
I am so sorry to hear about Jim’s passing! Prayers for the family!
I will miss his posts with photos and the stories of the people he would meet at the River. I always looked forward to hearing about the next adventure. Teresa and Jimmy, I send you love, hugs, and prayers for peace for all of the family and friends. Beth Miller
Praying for the family in this time of need. He will truly be missed
I'm so sorry for your loss. Mr. Jim was a great person always so kind to everyone and smiles!!!RIP!!❤
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.
This was a hard one to hear my dear friend...so many of us will feel the loss of you Jim...such a strong supporter of our community and great friend to so many...I can't imagine our ole river & San Souci without your presence.... I'm very thankful & blessed to have had you in my life with your wisdom & kindness & showing me the beauty in everything hon....you will be missed more than you could imagine and there is a piece of my heart gone forever....
May you rest in peace Jim.
Jimmy and Teresa. I’m so sorry to hear about Jim’s passing! Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time!
I am sad at Jim's passing but happy at the thought he is with all our loved ones. My favorite memory was listening to Jim and my Dad playing music in the backyard. We had some very good times. I know Darlene and Timmy met him with joy.
I knew Jim from our days at NIBCO. One of the most cheerful and kindest people ever. If St. Pete needs an understudy at the pearly gates he now has one available.
So sorry to hear about your loss Teresa. I will keep you and your family in may prayers
I was so shocked to hear of Jim's passing. I knew both Darlene and Jim back in the 70's while working at Crompton in Osceola. We had reconnected on FB in 2017. I will miss seeing his beautiful pictures he posted. My sympathy goes out to his family.
Im so Sorry to hear about the loss of Jim. I always loved seeing his pictures on Facebook of the Miss. River. Sending my prayers to his family. God bless you.
Keeping you all in my thoughts & prayers .
Jay & I are sending you love & praying for peace and comfort in the very long days ahead.

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.
Jim is a Hugh loss to our town. I grew up with Darlene and I loved the way he always had her in his heart. Bless their Children and family.
I will so miss Jim. Always cared so much about our community and was a good friend to all. The River San Souci park will never be the same without our greeter. The good thing he will be with the Love of his life. Will miss you. Lea Hedger

Teresa and Jimmy so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. I will keep you and yours in my prayers.
PRAYERS !!!!!! AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!!! SO SORRY JIM WAS A GOOD MAN AND FRIEND !!!!!!
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.
