My thoughts and prayers are with the Aboud family. The loss was a great burden to bear. The memories will last forever and never fade. We met at K-State in 1952 and became roommates. Jimmie was the brother I never had. Our bond became stronger throughout life to the very end. No more pain. RIP my friend.

I came across the name of James Aboud, and learnt of his passing, because I Googled my name, which is also James Aboud, and said to myself, that I should say farewell to my namesake. RIP ~James Aboud (Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies)

Aboud Family & Extented Family of Aboud Enterprises..........My heart goes out to each and everyone of you. Jim taught me many valuable lessons in life and in business. 1.) Hot food covers lots of mistakes. Since that day I've kept it hot!!! Spitually,mentally,and physically. 2.) Planned-overs 3.) TO Check: I loved seeing Jim enter through the rear of the business checking, through the galley checking to the service area checking and finally on the floor two coffee pots in hand. Table to table checking only after checking him self..Clean hands warm smile lets go.Loved his style. He will live on in our hearts and mind. Greater Today than yesterday. Jim lives on.

Jim Aboud gave me my first job in the service business the “Flaming Steer “ along with almost all my family seemed to work for him, Mother, sisters, cousins and Aunts. He was all about family he truly knew this business. A few years ago my sister Gale had a “Flaming Steer Reunion” which he came along with about 20 others. I am so thankful that I was home in Wichita and was able to have lunch and laugh with him. He was such a good friend to my Mother she had 5 kids and he always kept her working. My heart goes out to his family.

We were sorry to hear of the passing of Jim. He was always a good friend and we consider it to have been an honor to have worked for him. He was a good friend and a good man. He was in a class all of his own. They do not make them like him anymore.

When Barbara and I were married thirty years ago we were so very fortunate to have our wedding reception at the 'Old Way Station." Jim was so gracious in handling our reception, making sure everything was properly set and a good time was had by all. He was a gentleman and just an all around good guy. He'll be missed but one can be sure that Jim Aboud has a spot reserved in heaven!
May the good Lord give his family peace and comfort during this difficult time.
