We are so sorry about Jim's passing. It was always a joy to see Dottie and Jim when we all worshiped at Zionsville Christian Church. There are so many fond memories. He was so devoted to his wife and family. It's admirable how he lived his life in so many different capacities before law school. I know he leaves a wonderful legacy for his family and he will be missed. We are keeping Dottie and all the family close in our hearts. Julie and Jim Haines

I am so sorry to hear about Jim's passing. He was the first judge I met in Boone County as he interviewed me for my Attorney Fitness test when I moved from Buffalo New York. Even after he left the bench we would talk as neighbors. I enjoyed seeing his flag up at his house and the conversations we had. He will be sorely missed.

No one more generous with his time. No one more caring with his heart. Never a more loyal and steadfast friend. Of course, any one who knew Jim knew that he loved to talk, listen occasionally, and offer his opinion frequently. We will all miss the Jim we knew and loved. He gave his all to his family and his faith in a manner we should all envy and try to emulate. He lived life to its fullest, every day. Rest in peace Judge!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Always enjoyed talking with and practicing in front of Jim when he was on the Bench. He was a kind sole and my best to Dorothy and the family. His love for Dorothy and the family was always apparent in everything he said and did. Mike

Uncle Jim was my father's baby brother. When I remember large family gatherings at Grandma and Grandpa's in Columbus, I remember Uncle Jim. He and Uncle Bob would later have the Brothers (My father included) with their wives get together and share their continuing paths and that of their children. Uncle Jim reached out to my husband and myself (as he did with my sisters) from time to time to let us all know he was thinking of us. He was a strong and devoted family member, a credit to the profession and strong in his faith. God prepared a room before him, he is with him now and our prayers go up to him and are with his wife and children. May the sorrow in his loss be eased by the knowledge of his deeds. God Bless, Donna Detamore
