    RIP My friend. We were neighbors, class mates most of all friends. We live in the same part of town, played, fished and worked with each other. I will miss you my dear friend.

  • Hal and Shirley Williams

    We have lost a long-time friend. We were school mates with him from 8th grade through high school. Over the years we have always kept in touch. We have fond memories of meeting in Marblemount, visiting and reminiscing about our earlier years, family and friends. He was always a gentleman and loved to talk about finding the Lord. We know this brought him much contentment and joy. We will miss him and his positive attitude.

    We will miss Jim and his warm smile and friendly manner. Always sad to see and elder go. I do feel that Jim would have wanted one additional person mentioned in his obituary. Ray Darrel Jarmin was also his step son to whom he was very close, and depended on for a lot of times. RIP Jim.

  • Pam Aldridge

    We will miss Jim, he always had a friendly word and a great smile, and I am certain he would have wanted it mentioned that he also had another Step-Son, whom he was very close to, and depended on a lot and that is Ray Darrel Jarmin, also of Rockport Wa.
