Dear Marilyn,

I have been thinking of you since the day Feb. 28, 2014. So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Please know that you and your family deeply are in my thougths.
I am so glad that my Christian has learned to know Jim, he was a great role model for him. He speaks about him with lights in his eyes thinking about all the great memories he had, staying the year in the Masonbrink family. So am I.

Love from
Gerd and family

Our friendship with Jim started when we both attended Defiance College. In recent years we renewed our friendship when attending DC Homecoming and Kappa Fraternity activities and gatherings. Also, meeting and visiting at the DC Reunion at the Underwood's in Marysville. Jim always had a wonderful smile when we would meet at these functions.

Jim will be missed by us and the many friends he had over the years.

Dear Marilyn and family,
So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I can just see Jim up there in that heavenly choir sitting next to mom ( Marguerite) singing. He had a beautiful voice and I can remember him singing" The Ivory Tower" song on TV when we were just kids. He will be missed.
Love Bobbi and Roger Mauller

Marilyn & family,
I had the pleasure of working with Jim for many years as a co-worker at Phelan Insurance Agency and he was the agency field rep for a number of years. What a gentleman he was! Always upbeat and very caring. He was very proud of his family and I always enjoyed talking with him. I am sure all of you will miss him very much.
Marilyn, we will keep you and your family in our prayers.
