I just learned of Jim's passing. I am so sorry and my thoughts and prayers go out to Bill and the family. So many great memories of campouts and the Region 7 Canoe trip. Jim was a good man and a great scout leader.

Terri & Bill,
My sympathies. Our fathers were friends and bowling buddies. Wednesday night league champions year after year. Always enjoyed your dad at the bowling alley.
