Betty Jane....I know Jim will be missed by you and your family.....He ,Uncle Howard and Howdy all had a strong and lasting effect on my younger years.... Jim taught me to run a lathe and cut threads when I was about 13-14 as well as many other things that I still use and remember. I was always sorry that Mutt did not leave his half of the business and some other things to Blainie, which I think would have made life a little more manageable for Jim and you. I always tell people that I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to grow up working in my cousins machine shop and for the unique tools of the trade that they passed down to me. I have only good thoughts and memories of Jim. Kind personal regards to you and your boys, Art

Mrs. Koehler/Jay/Gary, Please accept my most heartfelt condolences on Mr. Koehler's passing. He was a man that I, as well as many others, held in highest esteem. He granted me many favors over the years - from the occasional machine work to keep one of my junk cars running to serving as a personal reference when I joined the Navy - and I will always be grateful for that. Respectfully, Ken Graeser CAPT USN (Ret)

Gary and Yvonne - I'm saddened to hear about the passing of your father/father-in-law. I never had the opportunity to meet your Dad, but he HAD to have been a great guy, being your patriarch ... and a graduate of Beaver High! While the loss of a parent is difficult at any age, I'm confident that he had a full and satisfying life. I literally think of my Dad every day (he fell 2 months short of reaching 90), and still miss him a lot, seven years later; but the memories are so positive!

Gary and Family, As our pastor was saying in church this past Sunday, “We may not personally know the parents of our friends but we can measure their success and the type of person they were by the lives that their children and grandchildren lead.” Knowing you and Yvonne and all the stories you’ve shared of your children and grandchild we have to say that Jimmie was quite a guy. It is sad to say goodbye. “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven.” Luke 6:23 John and Louise Maravich
