Jim graduated from Boonville High School in 1988.
Jim was an extremely intelligent person and had extensive knowledge of many subjects. He experienced much in his life and he made an enormous impact in many other lives. Not a day went by that we didn’t learn something from Jim. He challenged us, he pushed us and he is the reason we succeed.
He will be missed every day. May he finally rest.
