Oh my, I'm so sad to read that Jim has passed. I worked with Jim for many years at Sheboygan orthopedic associates and we shared many stories and had some good times. I saw him go through such rough times with his health but he sure did make it through because he was such a strong guy. He was the best cast technician! Bergschultz family, I'm so sorry for your loss... I'm sure Jim is helping people in heaven just like he did here on earth now..

Jim was a great friend, scouter, and co-worker during the early 80’s at Camp ROKILIO near Kiel. My condolences to the family as Jim helped raise a great scouting family. His enthusiasm and sense of humor along with his service to others is what my wife and I will remember. There is a great roundtable in heaven and Jim has joined it. May God grant him eternal rest.

Michael P Ford

Rest in peace good friend! May the Great Master of all Scouts be with you until we meet again! We are keeping Pat and the family in our thoughts and prayers! Mike and Pat
