Relation: Childhood friend, Jim was in my wedding party.

Very sad to hear of Jim passing. I had not seen him for a few years but always considered Jim a good friend. My condolences to the rest of the family

From: Glen Bergen
Relation: Cousin

My memories of Jim are mostly pre adult. Our families were close and we did a lot together. The teenage years it was our 10 speed bikes. The Cedar Hill boys (Jim, Bruce, Harry, Dave, Gary, & me) rode our bikes everywhere even Hicks Lake, well, Harrison, didn’t quite make it. Jim was the “McGivor” of the group, could fix anything. His mechanical aptitude was incredible. I remember going for our license test, it took him 1 week, me 2 weeks to pass. His first car was a 74 Vega. I remember his Trans AM with the big gold eagle. We had many camping, hiking and road trips. He was also an excellent carpenter, those that live in his houses are lucky. He showed me one house where the finishing carpentry was amazing and he cut the siding all by hand to get that perfect look. One thing is for sure Jim did not lead a boring life, his life was full of adventure.

From: Dennis Peters
Relation: Saw him grow up in the same church.

So sorry and shocked to hear about Jim’s passing. He was always the strong quiet one when I knew him, but I suspect there were times that wasn’t so. We last connected at the Ladner car and quilt show, where a car of his was entered. Our love to all of you as learn how to live without him. Someone has said, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory, no one can steal.”
