    This is a lovely tribute to a very caring and giving man.

    As Norma’s sister I have known Jim for decades. The first day I met him he was planning to come to our farm in Vicksburg and meet our parents and me. He was caught in a blizzard, abandoned his car and walked the least two miles. Since that day so long ago I have known Jim to be devoted to Norma and to his ever-growing family.

    Lou and I are holding all of you in our hearts.

  • Elizabeth Page and family

    I have fond memories of Jim & Norma when I was a young freshman at Michigan State. Over the years we have many good memories of the families getting together for various functions. Our thoughts are with the four boys and their families.

    I had the privilege of being Jim’s community guardian for his trip to Washington DC with Talons Out Honor Flight. We had such a wonderful day and I will never forget him. He shared so many stories about his military service, his love for our country, and his love for his family. My sincere condolences to his friends and loved ones. I know he will be greatly missed. It was an honor to have the opportunity to know him and thank him for his service.

    Jim and I grew up living across the street from each other. Sleigh riding together in the winter down the street between our homes is a pleasant memory of our early years.
    Jim was known as “Little Hunz” as his older brother Bob was known as “Big Hunz”.
    Jim was easy to be with and I just remember laughing a lot during our years together.
    He was a gentleman and a gentle man and he will be missed.

  • William Bouman, MD

    I had the pleasure of caring for Jim during the first few years of his kidney transplant. Jim was the best of patients, friendly, thoughtful of others, and invariably cheerful. His smile and sense of humor will long be remembered.
