I knew Jim through a yoga class at the cancer center in Bellingham. For those few years, I saw him weekly and enjoyed his ready smile, sense of humor, quiet manner, and good nature about trying new yoga poses. Like all of us, he met those poses with varying degrees of "success", and laughter, at times.
I will miss him, as I know his family will, too.
Jim was an integral member of our Wednesday yoga class at the cancer center for a few years. His presence always kept the mood light and fun. He added wit, charm and chivalry. He would laugh if he knew I wrote this. He often offered his chair or space to others with a smile and a sincere desire to help and connect. We even gave him the nickname of "prince" when he was the only guy in the class. He sparked laughter and joy and anyone who met Jim would agree he brought sunshine into the room. We will all dearly miss him. I miss him already. I am so glad I had the pleasure to know Jim.
Though brief contact with Jim, he quickly became a big part of our group. We have thought of him often during his absence from Bocce Ball.
He will always be remembered as a fun loving guy with lots of great stories.
Our sincere condolences to his family.
Bellingham Senior Center, Bocce Ball Group
As a customer of Jim's at a Portland area electrical distributor, I remember Jim as a fair and honest factory rep. It sounds like he was able to very much enjoy his retirement years. Condolences to his family.
Jim was a highschool classmate and fun to be around. Haven't seen Jim since 1957 but remember him fondly. My condolences to his family and friends.
