In Memory

Jim (Herring)Thackeray

Jim (Herring)Thackeray

Class of '67

Our Classmate Jim Herring/Thackeray passed away April 17, 2017 in Deland, FL.  I have not found an Obit yet but I know that Jim and his wife Patty lived in Deland for at least the last 15 years.  I worked in Deland after moving to Florida in 2004 and had lunch on several occasions with Jim and Patty. 

Please keep Jim's wife Patty and their family in your thoughts.  I will send out a link to his obit when it is published.

So sorry to hear Jim passed. He was such a nice guy. Happy I spoke with him at last reunion. Deepest sympathy to his wife and family.

Jim and I were good friends in high school as we both liked to dance and frequented the "Y", the "Faba". the Ottawa Park Pavillion together and even made a few trips to the Devil's Lake Pavillion to dance. I hope he found all he wanted in life and finds even more in the afterlife. Rest in Peace Jim.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Jim.  "Yeats wrote, "Count where man's glory most begins and ends, and say my glory is I had such friends."  RIP Gentleman Jim

Jim and I go way back and have gotten together several times in the last few years.  After I moved to Florida in 2004 I worked for a Company in Deland Florida which was were Jim retired to.  We saw each other at the 40th reunion in 2007 and found out he lived in town where I worked.  We meet several times during the years after.  However, I retired at the end of 2014 and we had not been together since then.  I was surprised as everyone else at his passing.  Gone way to early.  RIP JIm.
