Not sure what to say?

Fond remembrances of Jim as a wonderful longtime neighbor and Air Force coworker. He was always ready to help, and held in high esteem by all, from military service, Air Force civilian service, and community. May Vivian and family find comfort and peace, knowing our thoughts are treasured and that he will not be forgotten.

Wishing the family comfort and peace as the mourn the loss and celebrate the great life of Jim.

So very sorry for your loss

Mr. Angell was a quiet man. However “When Mr. Angell spoke, people listen.” I witnessed the impact and influence he displayed when he walked into the room. I would fondly say, I want to be like you when I grow up. He had an impact on other's around him by just being present. He had an impact on ME. I am praying for your strength, peace and comfort during this time.

Jim was such a wonderful friend and mentor! He was truly passionate about his family, serving others, and doing things the right way! I fondly remember working on our Master’s degrees together and all of the hours our group spent driving back and forth to Denton and eating short stacks of pancakes at IHOP :). I will miss you my friend! God bless you.

Jim was a great friend, mentor, and supervisor. Praying for comfort for the family during this difficult time.

Sincere condolences for your loss. I will miss his pictures and photography tips! A truly nice guy. God bless.

So very sorry! Enjoyed working with him during the HHH.

I worked with Jim for several years. He was always a very caring & kind man. What a great friend Jim was. He will be missed by everyone.
