I worked with Jim in the early 80's. He was a kind man with a good heart. Peace to him and his family.

Jim was always full of energy and fun. My prayers are with his extended family at this sad time. We have lost another great person from the class of 57.

Jim and my late husband, Dan Boucher, met and worked together in the service department at Maxton Chevrolet in Worthington. They became longtime close friends; this was before marriages and kids. Jim stayed at Dan's parents' home for a while until Dad Boucher decided that Dan and Jim in the same house was not the best situation. One of my favorite memories with Jim and Diana was when the Allens,the Wellmans,the Sensels, the Bouchers and the Lukeharts took a trip on a houseboat on Lake Cumberland, Kentucky. We had a lot of laughs during and afterward remembering that trip. Jim was loved and will be missed by all his longtime friends and their wives.

- Barbara Boucher, Wednesday March 26th, 2014

Jim was a long time close friend who we were fortunate to be able to say was our very good friend for almost 40 years. We had a lot of good times and a lot of great laughs with him and Diana, the Schulte's and the Powell's. Jim loved his golf and loved working on cars, and he had a contagious smile and great sense of humor. We were so glad we were able to see him one last time on the 15th. Take care my friend and say hello to Diana for us. Love,Pat & Denny
