Jim loved his family and friends, and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his loving wife, Verna, of Brookings; his two sons, Bob (Cindy) and Tony; four grandchildren, Ciara, Michel, Melissa and Christina; three great-grandchildren, Estee, Damien and Sophie, all of Washington. He is also survived by his brothers Don (Nan) and Dilbert (Helen), his sister, Dru, many nieces and nephews and sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws. Jim was preceded in death by his first wife, Margaret and six brothers: Eugene, David, Roger, Bob, Nelson and Lee. A get-together will be held at Chetco RV Park Recreational Center on Friday, December 9, 2011 from 2-4 P.M. All friends are invited to come by.
