Jim’s accomplishments in life are many. The skylines of the Dallas area and numerous cities around the country changed through his 60+ years’ construction management career. His last assignment here – the new Parkland Hospital of Dallas – was the last of many such large projects he oversaw. The former CEO of Parkland, Dr. Ron Anderson, said in a recent email:
“Jim has contributed so much to Parkland on our bond programs and construction going back to the 1980 bond program and now our replacement program. He is a real soldier, and was always a steady rock you could count on. I know this last part of his life has been difficult, but I know Jim is a person touched by Grace, because he gave so much to our combined efforts to create the infrastructure to take better care of the poor. I believe humility is a great strength among many others he’s exhibited in his professional and personal life. He knew our ultimate purpose and always engaged in such a way as to be sure we accomplished it. I admire him greatly.
Ron Anderson, M.D. (Parkland CEO 1982-2011)”
With the construction industry that he loved and the numerous friends he made along life’s journey, we sense the difference he made in so many people’s lives through the measure of outpoured love and gratefulness we continue to receive. Thank you for all the kindness you continue to show us. We know we are blessed as a result.
In Christ’s Love,
