That signature crooked finger always in his wave as he would drive by me on the tractor, lives with me to this day. Such a kind man.
I was so sorry to hear of this sad news and I wish to extend my sympathy to your family. Quiet, sincere, so observant of life – I always enjoyed my conversations with Jim, especially appreciating his wry sense of humour and insight. I will miss him.
To the Shea family: Sincere sympathy on the loss of your brother an uncle. My thoughts an prayers are with you at this difficult time.

A life quietly lived is a life well lived and Jim changed the world in his own way. What a great farmer, committed and dedicated. Thank you Jim.

Our deepest sympathy and prayers with you all at this sad time.
Sad to see such a strong man taken so young. One of my best friends when I was a teen and visited the Shea family during the summers. They were some of the happiest times of my life. Regretfully, I lost contact for many years. Jim was a hard worker and a dedicated smart farmer. I will miss him. Loretta and Joe will welcome him in heaven. God rest his soul.
