Just learning of Jim’s passing. Worked on his team at the Board of Pensions. He was a good guy, quick witted and down to earth. I pray for the family and hope you all are encouraged by memories people leave. God Bless

There are just no words! Jim was more then "like" a brother he was our brother. May we someday know why an Angel was sent to us, albeit for a short time, to help us along the way. Jim always welcomed everyone in his home with a smile and a joke. Treating our entire family like his own. Creating meals for us, chatting, listening, relaxing on his deck in the beautiful home he built on the canal. His true love and devotion to Annmarie was a shining example to all of us. She "wanted for nothing" with Jim in her life. A loving and devoted father to Kayla, Sean and Ryan. We have lost a brother and dear friend but his presence will always be felt in the love he left behind. Cherished memories will remain forever in our hearts. Rest in peace, Jim until we meet again.

My heart breaks thinking I will never hear your voice or see you again. Glad that you were one of my very best friends. You protected me all the time when we went out to the bars. I loved hanging out with you on Champaign Island, taking back water booze cruises and riding in the inner tube drinking beers, laughing and talking. We had many great times being crazy at BTL. You will be truly missed. Rest peacefully my buddy! Until we meet again. My thoughts and prayer go out to his wife and family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Jim, 45 years seems like enough time to accomplish anything until it comes to our friendship. I have been struggling to find the right words that could possibly describe the combination of love, friendship and disrespect that we have shared. Thank you for always being you when I needed you to be you. Thank you for tailgating at my Dad’s funeral with the BTL crew, it was exactly what I needed. Thank you for countless nights out hanging. I will miss you immeasurably, rest easy my friend. Until I see you again.

Hey Jim. We met when we were 15 years old at BTL. I can remember you in your cut off jean shorts, some wildly inappropriate t-shirt and a fixed smirk under your mustache. I had no idea at the time that we would become lifelong friends. Time and life often causes people to drift but that friendship basis is always there. Even now, that you’ve made the trip to Heaven, memories will always remain. Thank you for being my go-to family weddings “plus 1”. Thank you for comforting me during my parent’s divorce in the late 80’s. Thank you for stalking my mom with me when she went on her first date after that divorce. Thank you for letting me drive your big blue Thunderbird around the campground. Thank you for the countless laughs and pranks we all played on each other. A good friend once wrote this in my high school yearbook: “I’m sure I could have lived my life without you but I’m glad I didn’t have to”. Thank you for being my friend.

I had just come across this photo of Jim from our Senior Class Trip 1984 when I saw of his passing. He was so fun in high school. May he rest in peace and stay forever young in our memories.

Dear Jim: you lived well and in the end you fought the the good fight, but, God had a big Job ahead for you and called you home. He said Welcome home Jim. No harm or pain can touch you now. Rest in peace.

Jim was such a nice brother-in-law. He was a good friend to me. He listened and gave good advice and joked and made me laugh so many times. He was a wonderful cook and made the best mashed potatoes! One year we were chatting about desserts and I mentioned a chocolate chip cookie/cheesecake recipe that looked good. About a week later when I went over to Annmarie and Jim’s house for dinner he surprised me by having made that dessert especially for me. It was SO good! I’m sharing that quick memory because it shows how kind and thoughtful he was. He usually sat next to me at Thanksgiving dinner and I’ll especially miss him at our family holiday gatherings. He was always joking and laughing and everyone loved him.

To Sweet Annmarie, The Boyles & The Schlitter Family: I am very honored and privileged to have known Jim at his finest!! I will cherish all our boat rides, fireworks on the water, whiskey tastings on Boyles Deck and dancing like fools anywhere and everywhere. He was the ABSOLUTE sweetest, kindest man I knew, and he loved Annmarie with all his heart. I know Jim is having a toast with the communion of saints!!
