I will always remember our times at the bowling alley while our dads ran the tournaments. Special memory of when the bouncing ball got away from us and almost made it to one of the lanes. Other treasued memories include the many visits to the Monroe home and goldfish snacks. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Monroe and Meredith. My love to you!!

Prayers for you in your loss. We have so many special memories of the times we happily shared with you in Wooster in our early married lives and whenever we could gather together after leaving Wooster. Those years will always be very special to us. We will remember Jim with his sunny smile and generous spirit. Our love to you at this difficult time - you will be in our thoughts and hearts forever.

There are no words to express the sorrow in my heart at the loss of one of the kindest, most wonderful people in the world. Jim was a great friend to me and I will never forget all the fun and crazy times we had together. My sincerest sympathy to Gary, Mary, Meredith, John and families. Hugs and love to you all.

I am sorry for your loss our thoughts and prayers are with you all

It was so great to re-connect with you on Facebook within the last year. I will never forget your invitation to the prom: "Will you please go to the prom with me. My mom is bugging me to go." I mean, who can say no to that? I did wonder why you were all about making sure your outfit was trendy and coordinated...I was slow, but I caught on. We had a great time!

Of course, I fully intended to catch up with you either in Wooster or on one of my trips to Columbus. I so wish that would have happened. Wishing God's peace to your spouse, your mom, and your sisters, and your Delta family.

My deepest condolences and prayers to the entire Monroe family.

Sending you all love and heartfelt wishes for peace during this time of sudden loss and sadness. Jim was such a wonderful person and brightened the lives of so many. xo

Dear Gary, Mrs. Monroe, all of James’ family, and friends;
I’m so sorry for your loss. Chip was an absolute joy to work with at Delta. I flew several trips together with him over the years. He was an excellent Flight Attendant. A wonderful, sweet, kind man. With a great personality and hilarious sense of humor. He always told wonderful stories. We laughed a lot together at work.
Please except my heartfelt sympathy. Myself and all Delta Detroit based Flight Attendants will surely miss Chip very much.
Bless you all. Prayers. Karen Grados Delta Flight Attendant

John
I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your brother.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

John....so sorry for your loss.

I will never forget James. He saved me from choking on the way home from school once. I got a starlight mint stuck in my throat and I couldn't breathe. I started panicking and he went and got me a coke from the nearby gas station on Beall Avenue. The coke helped dissolve the mint and then I threw it all up. James was one of the nicest people I ever knew. He made you smile with his sunny personality. My condolences to his husband and family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

My heart aches at your loss.

I love dogs too. I donated to the Wayne County Humane Society's Emergency Fund in memory of Jim. My deepest sympathy to his loved ones.

As I read all the positive things people have said about James, my brain is flooded with wonderful memories of this man. He is all and more than any one post can say. I graduated with James in 1985 and he always had a smile on his face and although not as outgoing as he became, he was fun to talk to. I wish I could have known him better. In death, I am sure he will continue to watch over Delta passengers and crew, helping God make sure everyone is safe, happy, and comfortable. What a guy you are my friend! You will be missed by so many. It’s my honor to say we were friends then, now, beyond and forever. Sincerely, Tom Zuller

Mary, Meredith, John and Gary: Loving thoughts and healing prayers for all of you during this difficult time.

I am so deeply saddened at the loss of Jim, he truly was a light in my life. I met him at Kent State where we worked together - and I always loved being a on a shift with him, or having shenanigans when we weren't working. After losing touch, it felt like such a gift when we reconnected. I was tickled to find that he could still make me laugh, it was as if no time had passed at all. My deepest condolences are going to his family -- as I know he was dearly loved. I wish you all peace.

Chip was a regular commuter between LGA-DCA for years, before transferring to the DTW base. He was truly one-of-a-kind and one of the funniest people I've ever met. I'm going to miss him so much!

We are so sorry, we had wonderfull times together when we were neighbors.

Mr. Chip was a funny, kind and happy person! We had a great time in DCA base. He will be missed by all of Delta family. My deepest condolence to his family.
