Share This Obituary

It's been two and a half years since Jim died and I am just now learning about it. Like me, I'm sure many others would have posted before now had they known. I owe Jim a lot for what I learned from him in the USAF. He was also my sponsor when I replaced him in Turkey. He was a great guy and I wish the best for his family. Goodbye, Jim. Thanks for all. You made a real contribution to God, country, and family in life on earth.

Dear Sharon and the Chiles family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Jim's impact to the Air Force and to everyone he met along the way was always positive. He taught many of us all we know about human resource management. We will always remember him for what he did for us as a group and as individuals. Thanks for sharing him with us.

Dear Sharon and Jim's family,

If you don't already know, you'll soon find out what a profound impact your husband, dad, and brother had on the lives and careers of so many of us who were fortunate enough to know and work with Jim. He not only showed the way, but he also created so many opportunities for us. I'll always be thankful for his friendship, amazed by his intellect, and inspired by his humble leadership. May God rest his soul and grant you peace and consolation.
