Condolence: How I wish we could all be together today celebrating amazing Uncle Jim! I loved Easter holidays at Grandma's with everyone coming to celebrate and marveling at the beautiful bunny cake and the summertime reunions held in Westerville. I somehow always found a spot at the table right by Uncle Jim and enjoyed telling him all my stories! I'm sending huge hugs to all and our love and prayers.

Condolence From: Sue Speakman, Pickerington, Oh
Condolence: Dear Carol and family,
Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of Jim. I always enjoyed sharing a music stand with him in the Westerville Community Band and have missed him these past few years. The wealth of local history he shared with me was always a highlight! We also shared stories of our travels to Colorado to visit our respective families. Jim was so proud of his all of his family! He will be greatly missed. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Condolence From: Earl Newberg, Dublin, Ohio
Condolence: I am sad to hear of Jim’s death. He and I were roommates with Al Manson and the late Wayne Wright in the Pi Kappa Phi house at Otterbein. I chatted with him at almost every Homeciong parade and PKP alumni meeting in last few decades. We chatted in emails
and Facebook. He was one of the first to “like” puns
sent his way. He posted his share of funny and interesting Facebook items. He was so helpful with information about our fraternity brothers in recent years. Some of it came through extra work on his part.
I have written much of the above to Gus. But I wanted the whole family to get a sense here of why I counted him as a faithful friend. Please accept my deep
sympathy. Earl Newberg, Otterbein Class of 1960
