  1. My deepest sympathy to you all. Jim was one of the best men I’ve ever known. We truly have lost a good man, friend, father he loves his girls. God’s blessings and prayers to you all

  2. Jim, you are going to be missed by all who had the privilege to know you… You were the best of the best and we will always treasure your friendship. Thank you for all you have done for our fallen veterans and assisting in the Patriot Guard Riders honor escorts… Our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers for you, your family, and your friends. God bless you, R.I.P. brother, many thanks to you from Patriot Guard Rider “Johnny B”

  3. Always with a smile and a warm welcome for the Patriot Guard, no matter what the time or conditions were. Dedicated, and doing what ever he could to make all our missions go as smoothly as possible. God blessed us with his life and now he is receiving his reward in the arms of Jesus. Thank you Lord for letting us share in his life. Please put your arms around Jim’s family and friends. Give them the comfort they need at this time, while they wait to be with him again.

  4. Worked with him at the airport for many years, a good man sad to see him go so suddenly. My prayers and thoughts to his wife and girls.

  5. Jim was always a light in the busyness of coordinating Greater St Louis Honor Flight. He cleared paths, watched our cars, genuinely respected (and expected of others) the veterans we served. He was fun to work with and he is already so missed. My condolences to his family.

  6. This was my father. I had him in my life a year and a half, but I greatly value the time I spent with him. Rest In Peace, Dad. I love you.
