    Jim was a long-time friend and fellow volunteer at the Wehr Nature Center and more recently a fellow resident at Clement Manor. My last conversation with Jim was on Father’s Day as he sat on his porch with daughter Katie.
    He will be missed.

    Jim and my Dad, Eugene Birkhoilz, were Wheel & Chippers at Wehr and also ate together twice a week at Old Country Buffet, after my Mom died. I knew Jim pretty well, also. I was a Wehr volunteer until just recently. I did miss seeing him Lately. Always a smile on his face!.

    when the members of the current phenology group heard of Jim’s passing, we remembered his “rock on the house” & bad puns and his way of making new members feel at home.

      Thank you, Mary. His Wehr Family meant so much to him. Dad’s puns and corny jokes were the best! We will carry that tradition forward in his honor with love for certain. Best, Lynn, Katie, and Family.
