James (Jimmy) Grey, 61, passed away July 16, 2020 at St. Charles Hospital in Bend, Oregon. Jim was preceded in death by parents Bob and Mary Kathryn Grey of Lawrence. Survived by his wife Debbie and siblings Rod, Kathy, Bob, John, Susan, David and Tom.

In 1976 Jim left Lawrence for the Northwest to pursue a career in logging that lasted until 2018 when he was seriously injured on a job site that ended the work he was so good at. Jim often worked long periods of time in Alaska and fighting fires in California.

After his injury, Jim settled in Mount Vernon, Oregon with wife Debbie where he was able to enjoy the land he loved working in his vegetable garden, tending fruit trees and his horses.

Brother Jim will be missed more then words can express. Jimmy was fun loving, hard working and a kind man. Dearly loved by his family. Rest in peace my brother.

I knew Jim from Jr. High and High School. My best memories are from Boy Scouts wear Jim taught me more about camping and living off the land than the Scoutmaster. Foraging for edibles like watercress and drinking water from the same spring. Jim was one of those lucky ones he knew what he wanted to do at 15 and he went for it. He wasn't a big guy but he didn't take crap from nobody. In life sometimes you meet someone even for a short time who has an impact on your life. Jim was one of those. So when you see natural beauty in nature Jim is there. My sympathy goes out to the family. Tracy Dethloff
