Jim came from St. Francis Xavier’s College in Shanghai to study chemical engineering and eat at Court. He played soccer and joined the Outing Club, the Camera Club, the Engineering Society, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and the International Association.

He left us after two years to finish his bachelor’s degree at Tri-State College in Angola, Ind. He then earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D. at Case Western Reserve. His career was spent at Anheuser Busch in St. Louis, retiring as senior research director. 

In retirement, Jim was named a Master Gardener and volunteer at the Missouri Botanical Garden. He is quoted as saying, “The sky is high and the Earth is wide. I realize the infinity of nature.”

Jim died Nov. 28, 2020. He is survived by his wife, Beverly; and children Stanley and Sylvia, to whom the class sends good thoughts for their accomplished husband and father.
