Jim was my friend and next door neighbor growing up in Midland on Western Ave. We had worn out a path between our two houses over the years playing together. Jim loved Star Wars and I would come over and watch him build models and run around the neighborhood. Although I was 2 years younger, he treated me like an equal. When Jim got his driver's license, we would run around town in his white Chevy Vega. We both went off to college but stayed in touch and would visit each other when we came home during the summers and holidays to catch up. I was a groomsmen in Jim's wedding and I still have and cherish the pocket knife he gave me as a groom's gift. Since then, every time I would come back to visit my parents in Midland, I would run down to his house and say hello. Jim was a big part of my growing up and I will dearly miss him. Rest in Peace my friend.

As I'm sure you all know Mr.Leach was the best teacher that so many have ever had. I will never forget him or stop missing him. one of the years I was in his class, I believe it was 5th grade and then I was lucky enough to have him again in 6th, he had a brick in his classroom for some reason. Well I had free time one day and made this brick a suit out of note book paper and we named him Fred. Mr.Leach did his best to protect Fred from the other students for as long as he could. And that was the highlight of my 5th grade year. May he rest in peace. Sending prayers for his wife and children.

I was so sorry to hear about Jim. He was a wonderful person and amazing teacher... I loved teaching with him. I think of him every Christmas when I put out the amazing Santas that he gave me when his mom passed away. They are some of my favorites. I also remember how wonderful Stacey was to my granddaughter when she was at Goddard. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am so sad to hear of Jimbo's passing. We attended Midland High School together. He was a witty and lifted the spirits of those who knew him. We both became teachers and I know he touched to lives of thousands of students. We will be praying for Jim's family and friends...
