Twin brother Jim died March 5 2015 after fighting liver cancer for two years. He lived a damn good life and was not cheated in death. He lived in Scott Valley near Yreka California for over 30 years . There he was a ranch manager and later a general contractor. He left behind his wonderful wife Joyce of 39 years and four super kids. All kids live closeby except for Mathew who lives up at White Salmon Washington. All three grandkids from oldest daughter Amy saw him on a daily basis. I his twin brother Jon spent over 13 years living close by where we worked together and hunted together. Jim was a giver to his Rotory club, church and the community. His whole life revolved around his family and good friends. It is still hard for me missing Jim but we will meet again someday and somewhere in the future. I hope to see all you classmates at our 50th where we will see each other again-----------Jon Baker

you see on the website, our class of 50 years has many classmates who have gone before us.

jim will be remembered as a great guy and an all around good person.

just to set the record straight any comments about a split lip?? I think it was Jim, you may recall, but we had a bit of a fight in the shower (naked of course) and it ended up with Mr. Ellis sending me to the dr. to have 7 stiches in my lower lip. i still have the scar. i recall maybe a gym class issue?? do you remember?? best regards, bill zuur

Jim was a great guy, he and Jon  both had great personalities  and  gave help to whoever needed it....we all did some double-dating during the two years I was at MHS.    He is missed!

Jon,  Sorry to hear about Jim.  I have lost 3 very close girlfriends i thought i would grow old with.  I guess i kind of did and the fun things i looked forward too we were already doing.  The memories are great.  The pain of loss is lightened by friends and family and keeping a loving heart.  Barb
