Nancy and family, We were saddened to hear about Jim's passing. He was good man, had a great sense of humor, was all about doing the "right thing" and getting the job done. He was a great asset to the Pine Canyon Lake Association when we started it and over the years. I enjoyed seeing Jim riding on his golf cart with his dog and talking with him. He will be missed, but as a man of God we know it is not good bye, but merely we will see you later! With deepest sympathy! May God bless, Dave & Kathy Bruns

Dear Nancy and family,
I considered Jim a great friend. He loved his wife, daughters and the family. He taught me how to make the best peanut brittle, build and use a spud gun, not to wake up Molly's puppies or I had to take them all home with me and a Kentucky brake. Jim did things the right way and would help fix things and stand up for friends. Jim will be missed. God has another good man.
Blessings, Larry and Marsha Beck58
