    So sorry and saddened to hear this! James and I were in Boy Scouts together – I can’t remember or count how many weekends and week long summer camps we were on together. James was a really great person that always seemed to be smiling and was a kind, sweet soul. While we haven’t hung out in our adult like, he was a dear friend in our earlier lives. Dang. What a terrible loss to the world.

  13. Stacey says:

    I worked with James at Moundview, he was kind, shy and he took absolute stunning photographs of nature, he was so proud of those pictures. He would often share the pictures with me and tell me a short story regarding them. So sorry for your loss.

  14. Jim Franckowiak says:

    Brogan family, I am very sad to hear of James’ passing. I really enjoyed working with him and sharing deer hunting stories. He was very smart and was a giving person. He was quick to offer up a special tea he had or to share some candy. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  15. Kurtis Miller says:

    I have a lot of fond memories of James. I met him while working at Moundview and having both worked in IT, we had a lot of the same interests. From deer hunting, movie interests, tea aficionado, and especially computer hardware and PC gaming. Our mutual interests led to a friendship outside of work where we spent countless hours over the years playing video games online on a Friday or Saturday night. We had a lot of interesting and humorous conversations. He liked to go to garage sales looking for gems and was always finding cool stuff online that I didn’t know existed or that I needed until he brought it to my attention. Unfortunately we kind of lost touch over the last year or two. James was well liked by everyone that knew him and I will miss his humorous, kind, and generous spirit. My condolences to Mike, Deb, and the rest of the family.

  16. Bob and Janis Cada says:

    We are sorry to learn of James’ passing. May your memories be comforting to you and the family during this difficult time.

  19. Coral says:

    My heart breaks for you, Debbie…. but I’ll remember all the happy times
    we all shared with James throughout the years.
    Pumpkin picking, dancing in the living room, wrapping Secret Santa presents,
    first Communion, lots of little parties, all the way through to James and I sewing
    an unusual amount of buttons back onto tuxes when he was in Drew’s wedding.
    And we ended up laughing about that. He was a smart, kind and caring person.
    He will be so sadly missed and lovingly remembered, always.
    Wishing peace and comfort to all his family.

  20. Alice Parks says:

    Deb, Mike and Dan, so very sorry for your loss.

  21. Robin Hiller says:

    I worked with James
    For many years at Moundview. He had a quick, dry sense of humor and he was so smart! He was also generous (always sharing from his beloved tea stash) & kind. He knew I liked pigs and made me one on his 3d printer as a surprise. I will miss him. Please accept my deepest, sincerest condolences ❤️

  24. Roxanne Buchanan says:

    This hits me hard in the heart! I worked with James at Moundview. He was so knowledgeable and oh so witty. He may have been shy but when he opened up to you , oh how much fun we had! I also remember the family nights at Inn of the Pines when you all came in , playing pool, drinking a pitcher and I had the pleasure of waiting on you. I’m so sorry for your loss. Remember the good times!

  25. Jenni Podoll says:

    James and I were in the same grade and in many classes together since kindergarten… I have many fond memories of him- he absolutely was one of the kindest humans and I wish our paths could have crossed more than they did after school. We had some good laughs and talks when they did, which I will cherish, always. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  26. Kathy says:
