The world lost an amazing man on September 7, 2012 at 4:00 am.
His name is Jim, His name is Husband.
His name is Dad, His name is Papa.
His name is Friend.
The greatest gift Jim gave to his children and all who knew him ... was himself
His passion was his wife Val, for 47 years. His greatest joy was his family Scotty/Desi, Jordie/Shelly, Yorkie/Nettie, Ronnie/Joan, Mary Ann and all of his Bonaparte Family. His love was his work at BA Blacktop and later Harrison Electric.
Besides his family, Jim is survived by his seven grandchildren; Clay, Grace, Katy, Odessa, Nathan, Kayden and Justin, his beloved dog, Dixie, and his darling cat, Annie '2'. They are his certainty for a better world.
Jim leaves a legacy of a man who lived his life with integrity and an incredible ability to teach others. He lived his life on purpose.
He was Uncle Jim to Carol, Eli, Gail, Victoria, Shiela, Brenda, Ken, Terri, Jeanne, Bobbie Marie, Cody. Jim is also survived by three sisters; Vernetta, Vivian and Hazel and one brother Mel. Jim has a brother-in-law Mal, married to Norma Jean and a sister-in-law Marlene.
