Hello Buffalo Jimmy younger brother:
Are you well? Things are going well for me!
That Buffalo bonnet maker.
Thank you. We will see you later.
I'm really going to miss you Buffalo Jim. I will always cherish our friendship and common love for the Native American culture. Rest In Peace my friend.
Jim is indeed the greatest gift to Scouting. As a fellow Eagle Scout myself, I looked up to him and his support for the Scouting movement has been immeasureable. His support gave me the strength to dig deep and find my true potention to serve as a Unit Commissioner. I will kneel down in honor and in sadness of his passing, but will stand tall because I know his "Iron Feathers" will shine now and forever!
Fly High Brother Eagle!!
Jim was a treasure. He will be missed here on earth. Rest well my friend
Correction-the potluck for Jim will be on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 4:00PM at the American Legion Aloha Post 104. The previous post said September 29...
I met Jim at the American Legion and he soon became the person that I and my wife looked for each Wednesday night. He invited us to his home and we saw the museum that he had in his basement. On our last visit he played his player piano for us; that is something we will always remember. He was a dear friend and we will miss him.
It was a pleasure knowing Jim and he will be missed. We became acquainted with him through the scouting program and appreciate his many contributions to the Eagle Scout process in Sunset Trail district as an Eagle board chair. It was an honor to have him chair our own son's Eagle board.
I will miss u every Wed. nights hambuger night. I am glad I got to meet u. U are an awesome man. R.I.P. now.
What an Icon who carried a wealth of knowledge. Jim was very a passionate for the causes that were dear to him, One being Natïve American history. The Boy Scouts will surely feel the absence of his devotion to their program too. Jim is truly a unique and gentle man who's presence left a huge imprint in this world. Thanks for all the good times especially around the Piano at Buffalo Jim's Social Club!Safe journey to the Great Spirit and Nadine who are waiting for you.
He was a great neighbor and friend. A potluck in memory of Jim is scheduled for September 29, at 4:00pm at the American legion Aloha Post 104.
Jim was a great friend and one of the most generous people that I have ever known. He will be truly missed by many. It is unfortunate that his obit did not include that he was a Past Preident of the Oregon Society (1995-1996),Sons of the American Revolution, with 12 proven Revolutionary War Patriot ancestors and that he was an Eagle Scout with Order of the Arrow and Silver Beaver Awards,all were accomplishments that he was very proud of.
Buffalo Jim: one of the dearest, hard working, best craftsman, and best, truest brother ever. The best !!!! will be missed and remembered....
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
A great man has left us. He survived having an aircraft carrier bombed out from under him in WW II, was a fine and decent man. He did a lot to help our youth with the Boy Scouts. Not mentioned in the obituary is the fact that he was an active member of the Sons of the Amreican Revolution. Rest in peace my friend.
I met Jim when I went to his house to order an Indian head dress. He showed me his basement and his buffalo herd (ducks) He was great fun and I feel lucky to have known him. I saw his obit this morning in The Oregonian. It makes me sad that he is gone. What a great guy. Ibby Brooke
