Jim Hamm menehtyi sydänkohtaukseen 28.2.2021.
Suhteellisen nuorena joutui lähtemään (70v~?), harmin paikka.
This is Jim’s youngest son, Reed. I am writing on behalf of the family.
Dad passed Saturday night. He had a heart attack at home with mom and by the time the paramedics arrived, there was really nothing they could do. It was really unexpected as he had been splitting wood with Lee last weekend and had been working on a bow from an Osage tree we had cut here on the place.
I have read all of messages and appreciate everyone sharing how he touched their lives. It really brings comfort for us as we move forward that he touched so many people.
I have read the following phrase lately and it touched me personally: A society grows great when old men plant trees knowing they will never be able to sit in their shade. Dad tried to planted a lot of trees for a lot of people. I know he was a huge influence in my life and will miss him dearly.
