    Jim was a kind and gentle man with a great sense of humor. I did not know him as well as I knew his brother Jack because Jim’s career in banking caused him to move to Pittsburgh. But I still knew him pretty well. He had truly great laugh and the ability to make others laugh. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him.

    You have my prayers. I don’t know you but know your name. I was googling my father who worked for the VA for 40 years in KCMO. His name is also James loutzenhiser, so you will meet another James Loutzenhiser in Heaven. I am his daughter sending Aloha from Hawai’i.
