Jim was the first person I met when my family moved and I started Hollywood Park Elementary in the 6th grade.  Jim was one of my closest friends. Our older brothers My brother Bill and Jim's brother Glenn were best friends.  We were the tag alongs with them, helping to work on their cars with my dad, riding around in their souped up cars, cruising K street and going to Stan's drive in for milkshakes.  We learned all the popular songs from our older brothers by listening to their car radio's.  Jim & Glenn were like 2 more brothers for me.  Jim and I double dated together, me with Danny Roark and Jim with Patsy Patterson.  We all had shirts made by Jim's mom Betty so we could wear them to the State Fair.  Jim and I walked down the graduation aisle together. The next day I left for Europe with my mom and Jim went into the service .  We continued to keep in touch, both getting married and having kids.    

I will miss Jim so very much.  REST IN PEACE SWEET BROTHER.  

This is a message I received from Jim Smith' wife Betty.  Betty is not choosing to do an obituary.  

  Hi Ellen:
I did not do an obituary on Jim. He passed away on March 14, 2023 at home. He was 79 years old and lived in Branson, Mo. He will have Military honors and urn placed in wall at the Missouri Veterans Memorial Cemetary on April 28, 2023. Celebration of Life service will follow on April 29.2023. 
Thanks, Betty
