Nov. 14, 1931 — Sept. 11, 2012
Jim passed away at home with his family at his side. He was born in Woodward, Okla., and moved to the Placerville, Calif., area during the Dust Bowl days as a child with his family: father, George; mother, Lucille; brother, Robert; and sisters, Peggy, Betty and twin sister Jean. Jim was the youngest and the last to pass away. He leaves behind a loving wife, Caludean; son, Darrell (D.J.); daughter-in-law, Martha; daughters, Dorienne (Dori) and Tamara (Tami); granddaughter, Crystal; two great-granddaughters, Hannah and Ella; and adopted daughter, Susan.
Jim will be greatly missed. No services are planned because he wanted his body donated for research so he could help benefit others.
