James A Pasha 1947-2008

It is with sadness that we let you know that Jim passed away on Thursday, August 28. It happened while he was washing his already too clean porshe 968. "It was quick and final. I miss him more than I can say. " says his wife Janet.

The class of 64 has lost a great friend. Jim was very involved with the 40th reunion, writing newsletters for us all the time and helping to find lost classmates. I had many great conversations with Jim as I know many of you did. Jim was very intelligent, gifted with many talents, had a great sense of humor and was lots of fun to talk with.

We will miss you Jim.


Another reminder of what a brief time we all have. It was yesterday that we all walked the halls of Westmoor together. Each with our own unique personalities......we never thought of leaving this world, at that time. Now another friend, classmate and dear soul has no more halls to walk in this world. For his wife and family, I am so sorry for your loss. For Jim, thank you for being who you were on this joyous and sorrowful planet. For all of us, for this moment......we still have time to slow down and love what has been given us - to have another moment in time to be the best we can be and cherish what we have,God bless you Jim and your family. See you in the halls of tomorrow.

I will always remember Jim's wonderful sense of humor and his genuine interest in all his Westmoor classmates. He'll certainly be missed and we will indeed remember his warm spirit at next years reunion. Sincere sympathies to all his friends and family.

Although I had classes together with Jim we never really knew each other well at Westmoor ,.. but in our dotage Jim contacted me through classmates .com and over the past 5 years we have been e mail friends. The past 3 years have been a time of transition for me and no matter how down I was Jim had a word of encouragment and hope. I will sorely miss his emails, and most of all his friendship. These memories I will cherish as it is not often this late in life you develop this kind of friendship.
