  1. CandleImageSorry for your families loss. Jim was a very nice man and we’re happy we got to know him. May he Rest In Peace

  2. Jim was an all around gentleman. Very smart and talented in everything he touched. I should of listened to him more when I worked with him at Pueblo Mortgage in the 90”s. Condolences to the Family. God Bkess

  3. His hugs were like a warm blanket that wrapped you in love. He will undoubtedly be missed, but even more than that, he will be remembered…

  4. I have known Jim for years. He was always such a gentleman and so kind. We had many laughs–and some cries together. Kevin, I am so sorry for your loss. There will be a big hole left in many hearts.

  5. CandleImageI have known Jim for many years. He was always a true gentleman and very helpful whenever I needed it. He will truly be missed. I extent my sympathy to Kevin and the entire family.

  6. My dad wrote his own obituary. My dad was a CPA 😁. He focused on facts and numbers. This obituary doesn’t say who my dad truly was.

    My dad was the one that taught us to look a person in the eye when speaking.
    My dad taught us to be respectful of other peoples opinions, wether they are the same as ours or not.
    My dad taught us to be informed and to do our research before developing an opinion.
    My dad taught us to think for ourselves.
    My dad taught us that we can dislike an opinion or an idea but to still love the person regardless.
    My dad was the one that blow dried “feathered” my hair on my wedding day.
    My dad was the one that called the Hospice in Greeley every day to check on my daughter, Mandy while she was a patient there. The nurses all knew him even though they never met in person.
    My dad was the one that came by my house and insisted that I go to the ER. Even though I just knew my ankle would be ok in the morning… it was broken and needed pins and plates!
    My dad insisted on being by my side the day before I had my lung removed due to cancer. He was 87 years old and chose to make the trip!
    My dad and I spent hours and hours going through family pictures and statistics to put together our family tree. Hours that I will cherish forever.
    My dad was more than numbers and organizations that he belonged to. My dad was an incredible man that I will miss every day until I see him again… another thing my dad taught me… we will see each other again!

  7. CandleImageSo sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was a truly kind person who helped so many people through his leadership in the Shriners and other service organizations. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.

  8. Cheri, Sue, Jim, Kevin and family I am so very sorry to hear about your fathers passing, I know how much you enjoy spending time together and how close you all are please know i have you-all lifted into the light of prayer
