    I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I don’t remeber ever seeing him without a smile on his face. He and Irene came to Dad’s visitation in March at St. Maurice’s Church in Kindred and we missed seeing them by 10 min. I wish I had been able to visit with them. We will be praying for him and all of you throughout the coming days.

    He was one of the kindest men I ever knew in Kindred. Quiet and steady. You were blessed to have him in your lives.

    LEXINGTON MAI wish to express my sincere condolences to Irene, Dave, Craig and families for the loss of Jim. One of my first summer jobs was working with Jim, his son Dave, and his crew at CCEC installing the underground electrical service for the West acres shopping mall. I can still hear Jim say “more pipe”!

    We wish to convey our condolences to Irene, Dave, and Craig and their families.

    We enjoyed lots of snowmobiling with James and Irene years ago. We remember the one machine is adapted into being so loud that even in town, we could hear him start it up at your home! 🙂

    Our visits to ND
    will never be the same without being able to visit with James!
