Jim's death was so unexpected. We were able to talk to Jim at the last alumni. It seems like he was coping with a family member going through chemotherapy. When Cardinal was consolidating there were too many children and not enough classrooms. Campbells funeral home provided a room for our class. Jim being one of us Batavia kids. Jim was a very athletic farm boy at an early age. He also made a name for himself on the varsity wrestling team. I hope Jim's life experiences and good memories will.help his family cope with his absence!
