My sympathies to the Shoemaker family. Jim and I were classmates from 1st grade thru 12th. He was always in the top 3 or 4 of the students grade wise!! He was always one of the nicest guys in class. So sorry to hear of his passing. I hope all the good memories will give you comfort!!

I first met Jim when he was transferred to Tippecanoe in Plant Engineering Later in 1975 I transferred back to Plant Engineering and the two of us were in charge of the group. Jim was the nicest guy to work with and very bright! I will miss him!

I worked with Jim on a number of projects at the Tippe Plant. Great person to work with. Very very knowledgeable and a great help when as a "Corporate Engineer" I had projects to do at the plant. I also worked with him as Dept Head at the plant. Truly one of the finest Lilly folks I worked with. My condolences on your loss.

I am saddened to hear of JIm passing, what a wonderful person he was to be around. I worked for JIm about 8 years when he was in Indy and I can still hear his laugh in my mind. I am so sorry for your loss.

As we write this, it is difficult to accept that Jim has passed. We enjoyed the weekly meetings with him and Glenda at various restaurants, and the occasional trips to flea markets or antique shops. My wife and I have known Jim for a very long time, and I have always considered him as my best friend. And to Glenda, we will support you in any way we can, please continue to call upon us if you need us.
