Sorry for your loss

Bev and Family, sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was a great cousin, always smiling and such a gentle man! I was hoping to get to his service, but was unable to attend. Sending love and hugs! Maybe can get to visit some time soon!

Cousin Mary (Steffen) Lawson and Family

Family is forever no matter how near or far away they are.

The Mckenney family was not an easy one to deal with at times. You were a diamond in the rough. You were so happy and easy going you made holidays enjoyable for me. I have not been close with the family for years, but you will never be forgotten. Love always your niece Victoria.


Jim was always friendly – saw him often at the Drafting Association picnics.
Jim and I discussed our retirement strategies, and both left GE at approximately the same time.
