In the early morning hours of August 18, 2013, our loving husband and father passed away from a long illness. He was born April 16, 1922 in Dallas, Texas. In 1940 he joined the Army, where he served in the Pacific Theater and received the Bronze Star for bravery. In 1942 he came to Santa Rosa on coast watch where he met Violet Assini and they were married in 1943. He worked for PG & E for 36 years as a lineman and electrical line foreman. He was self- taught in the construction trade, building his family's homes in Sonoma and other counties. Jim is survived by his wife Violet; daughter Susan Green and her husband Ricky, sons Mark and Nate; grandsons Jim Bushneff and his wife Kriss, Michael Bushneff and his wife Sasha, Tim Ramsey and his wife Deanna, Derick Weiss and his granddaughter Tiniah Hough and her husband Austin; seven great grandchildren; Tyler, Ashley, Blixa, Maxwell, Sebastian, Victoria and Brooklyn. We will all miss your protective and loving ways. A Celebration of Jim's Life will be held at a later date. DANIELS CHAPEL OF THE ROSES FUNERAL AND CREMATION SERVICES 707-525-3730
