Not sure what to say?

Jim will be missed by everyone that knew him. A great breeder of rabbits and fantastic showman but most of all a true gentleman.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. And may God comfort you.

Life Long Friend

Reserve in Show at the same show in June!

Best in Show at the last show I had the pleasure of bringing Jim to in June!

My dear friend and mentor, Jim Bounakes for 25 years! I will miss you my friend! See you in Heaven!

Jim you were one of the good guys with all you taught my children about breeding and raising New Zealand whites and rabbits in general they looked up to you. Many great memories I have from us all with the rabbits and you. Rest in Peace my friend. Prayers to your family.

Im so sorry to the family of James Jim Bounakes. He was a Wonderful man, an Exceptional rabbit enthusiast - Very Dedicated!
What I will remember mostly, is whenever he talked to me, he would say, Kathy Nye and then he would start his conversation.
There have been some outstanding rabbit breeders over the years, but I know everyone would agree with me that Jim was Top Notch and will be Greatly missed!
I hope family & friends can find comfort reading my own & others...
