What fun it was to have Jim in our life. Shirley I will always remember our monthly dinners with Charlie & Jo. Those boys loved to reminisce and tell tales on each other. I can only guess what they’re up to now that they’re together again. God Bless you & your children. Love, Pam

We are so sad to hear of Jim’s passing. Chester and I have great memories of our faith group gatherings and talking in church when we should have been quiet. What a wonderful artist and such a kind hearted man. Jim had a great sense of humor and a kind word for all. He will truly be missed. The entire Gammpher family is a treasure and our heartfelt prayers are with you all. Much love to you Shirley. Monica and Chet

Sincere condolences to the Gampper family. I did not know Jim well, but our interactions were always enjoyable. He was a gracious host for several fun golf outings for his brother Chuck's neighborhood golf group. Good times with Jim and Chuck and the golf gang! Peace be with all of the Gampper family at this time of loss.

Condolences from the Sherards. What wonderful memories we have of Jim. He was quite a character (to include drawing Daffy Duck on my cast for a broken leg, with a cartoon balloon saying a dirty word), that was 50+ years ago and I still laugh about it. One of many "Jim" stories.

My condolences to the Gampper family. My father, Duane Nigus, was a life-long friend of Jim, and I heard many stories about them when they were growing up in Hiawatha. Duane died exactly one week after Jim, and I can't help but think the two of them are back together - reunited and up to some sort of mischief!

Dear Shirley, Chuck, and Family, Words can never express the sorrow we feel in our hearts upon the sudden passing of a beloved family member, especially a husband, brother, father, grandfather, and friend. Your husband and brother, Jim, will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Nonetheless, love lives on forever. May peace, comfort, and courage be with you to face the days ahead, armed only with precious memories of Jim, to hold forever in your hearts. Internal Rest, grant unto Jim Gampper, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen! In Loving Sympathy, Marty & Betty
