James C. (Jim) Gates

Without suffering, James passed away while visiting his son in Truckee, Calif., this last Sunday, September 22, 2013. Jim is survived by his wife of 58 years, Janet; two sons; two daughters; two granddaught -ers; five grandsons; two great-granddaughters; and one great-grandson.

Jim worked as a mechanic at Witham Parts & Equipment for 36 years and managed his small cow ranch on Scenic Avenue in Central Point since moving there from Henderson, Nev. in 1966. Jim was a loving elder and minister in the West Valley Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses and found great joy learning about and serving his wonderful Creator.

There is so much to say about this cowboy that should still be with us a while yet, so the family will welcome neigh-bors and friends to attend a memorial service at the King-dom Hall of Jehovah's Wit-nesses at 4:00 p.m., Sunday, September 29, 2013, 489 Cheney Loop, Central Point.
