“The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” Psalm 34:18 Uncle Jim was a funny and great guy. My brother and I had the best time hanging out with him and Aunt Janice when we went to visit them as kids. Uncle Jim was supportive when Grandpa died. He tried to keep me entertained to help me feel better. We’ll miss you Uncle Jim! From the Quiroz family

My family and I are sadden by Jim’s passing. I was able to talk to him a couple weeks ago and thankful for his loving care of his family. We grew up together (I am his first cousin with our mothers being sisters - Evelyn and Georgia). Jim was very active in our family’s genealogy. We would talk about our extended family on both sides over the years. I could not attend any family reunions having served in the US Army for 26 years, but I tried to visit him and Janice when I was back in Wisconsin. Jim will truly be missed. He was a great Father, husband, and friend. He cared about family first and foremost. Rest In Peace Jim, you earned it! Love, Paul, Inkyung, Danielle and Nathan Smith In Loving Memory of Jim Bachtell: Beautiful memories stay forever Of the happy times we spent together, Treasured in my heart you’ll stay Until we meet again some day.

Jimmy, you will be missed. I am sorry we missed having lunch together before this happened. Say hi to Loretta for me, I can only imagine you two watching over all of us here on earth from heaven and having some good laughs. You were a great friend too us. Rest in peace dear friend.
