The West Bend Sportsmen's club would like to extend our deepest sympathy to your family. Jim was great club President over the last 15 years and supported the club through some difficult times. His leadership allowed the club to flourish in the current times. As my friend I will miss his humor, his knowledge of various subjects and for his companionship on our seasonal fishing trips. Rest in peace Jim, until we see each other again. God's speed.
