So sorry Janeal, Matt, Mark and family for your loss. Coach was a great man and he had a great impact on my life and so many others. From football, basketball, track, health, to drivers ed there are so many great memories that I will always cherish. Even to this day as I drive down the road, I can hear him shout: “Big Truck”...and of course, “Little Car” just like I’m 15 again sitting in his drivers ed class. God speed coach your pain free and coaching God’s team now. That a baby!!

A Life well lived by Jim, a good and honorable man. You are loved and will be missed. You made a difference in many lives. A prayer for your sweet family: "May God give you...for every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer." Janeal, love and prayers for your journey ahead. God grant your peace and courage. Love, Nancy & Daymun

I coached with Jim in friona years ago. Loved that man. He was never in a foul mood and always brought a smile to my face and heart!!! I moved to red River , NM and bought a restaurant and over all the years if I had a customer from perryton or anywhere close come in,, I always asked about him and how he was doing. I never met janeal or his kids but I am truly sorry for your loss. I wish I had stayed in closer contact with him but years just get away!!! He will forever be remembered by all students and faculty. Love and prayers to all his family and friends!!
