Jimmy was part of the DesMoines group, Hennen, Brown, Rautman...  From Mrs Moses in kindergarten to Mt Rainier--so many memories.  On the Pacific Jr High football bus, singing "Arkills and Rosemary" all the way to the games...  Jim was a great guy!  Condolences to Janet and the family.  God Bless Arkie!

Jim sat in front of me in our  sr English class.
He was humorous & full of fun. 
I admired his positive attitude.

I'm sure he had lots of great adventures throughout his life!

My buddy for 71 years.  Des Moines Kindergatren alum.  We had great adventures; gym rat ball, boating, biking in Northern Idaho and Montana, and hiking. Boat building after school, figuring out how to get on the Sound with lunch money and box boy wages.  Always planning the next thing.  My protector and moral guide.  I'll miss him.
