Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked in the City of Sherman Engineering Department for 31 years. So I worked with Jim and his Department Staff often. Jim was "Mr. City of Sherman". I believe, during my time with the City, that Jim knew more about the City and it's operations than any other person. He was a man that was known to be able to get things done. If you did not know something "ask Jim". He had an excellent memory and always had the answer. May God comfort Jim's family with all the great memories of his life.

Our condolences to Carolyn and all the Andrews family. Jim was a friend to many and respected by all. His fulfillment of so many positions, civic duties, and volunteer work allowed people to see a man who earned the respect of so many! His dedication to his family, his church, and the city of Sherman was truly visible to all. He will certainly be missed. Prayers for the Andrews family.
