From Stacy Stringer Cordell (Jim Stringer’s daughter)

Hi friends! Many of you have been asking about my dad, Jim Stringer. Your thoughts and love have been so very appreciated.

In order to keep everyone informed, without telling this very long story more than the 1072 collective times we’ve already told it, we’ve started a CaringBridge site. We’ll provide updates as they are available. Please feel free to leave any thoughts or well-wishes in the comments on the site. I know Daddy will appreciate them.

Pictures shared by Tod Land, Jim’s bro. First looks like Milburn Jr Hi football team (no order) with Jim, Dave Zimmerman, Scott Barnes, Charley Gullet, Joe Hoagland, Don Woods, Doug Killion, and Mike Mahaney. Any others ???

With The help of Doug Jackson and Larry Broockerd we have the 1962 championship undefeated OP lumber team with (1st row l)Kenny Landis, Steve Dennison, Steve Kunz, Doug Jackson, Mike Mahaney, Pat Wise, Ted Wyss. (2nd row l) Jet Peake, ?, Larry Broockerd, Jim Clybourn, Jim Land, Skip Basler, ?. Bk row coaches l Emmett Jackson, ?, Henry Basler, George Dr Landis,w/ Donnie Basler as bat boy. Three pitchers Steve Dennison, Mike Mahaney and Doug Jackson all three had 2 no hit games that summer. OPLumber truly “struck fear into the hearts of opposing teams, coaches and players’
Enjoy:>)

Brother Tod Land,
We would likle to thank all of you for your kind words and comments - also for your prayers. Jim will be cremated and he asked that his ashes spread in the ocean - his son James will be doing that. We will be having a celebration of life for him in the near future and will post that time and place soon. Again, thank you all. His son James is with him in this photo.

Tod Land message. Jim will be cremated but other than that no arrangements have been made. He had one son who lives in Montana and I will be talking with him shortly and am meeting with the funeral home in a bit to get everything rolling. Most likely, we will have a small private service but will get that all worked out and let you know.

In updating Paul Dennis Miller's Obituary, I am respectfully including a picture and article from the KCStar about Paul's accident. The picture may make some of our classmates uncomfortable in viewing, but I wanted to share with those who choose to visit Paul's In Memory. Thanks to Jim Walsh for researching and finding the KCStar story and picture.
