I was sorry to hear about Jim's passing. We were in JrHigh together and in Babe Ruth Baseball together. His mom and my Dad worked together at Harris Corp together . He was a great athlete.

I was deeply saddened to learn that our peer was no longer with us as he was always a gentle soul with a desire to encourage through sending fun quips to make us smile. Jim loved his family and friends very much. He is missed. Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Jim leaves us with his perfect example of what a caring and loving person can be. To Jim, a friend in need was a friend indeed. Thank you Jim for being there as a shining star that brightened our days. God bless you and your family always.

Bixby would give the shirt off his back (or the food off his plate or the the golf club from his bag) for those he loved... or just kinda liked :). His humor was one of a kind and his friendship will be woefully missed. I hope you've found endless perfect Rueben's Bix.
