Very saddened to hear about Jim's passing. We worked together at a local open pit copper mine and served with him as volunteers of our local fire department for a number of years. Jim's knowledge of the mechanical aspects of heavy duty mining machinery earned him the opportunity to lead others as a mine maintenance foremen in the maintenance arena. In addition, his skills led him to maintaining the fire apparatus in our local fire department. During the time he resided in Claypool, he was serious about his church and his belief in Almighty God. My condolences to the family. Mitch Malkovich Claypool, Arizona

I knew Jim Rogers when we both lived in Miami, AZ and attended the Miami Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is a kind and thoughtful man. I enjoyed visiting with him on occasion. He will be missed and I am grateful to have known him. I can say the same for his lovely wife Joy. Joseph Jarvis
