James E. Able
May 8, 1921 - November 4, 2008
I've mentioned previously that Daddy Jimmy was an important part of our history.
He was part of the U.S Army, 508th Division, 82nd Airborne, 'Red Devils' Paratroopers.
He jumped onto the beach in Normandy on D-Day.
For years he lectured high school students when they were studying the war. If you heard him tell the stories, you were listening to a major part of history. He was awarded the Medal of Valor and a Purple Heart.
He was a wonderful man, and will be greatly missed.
He passed around sunrise, just the time when he would normally be getting onto the lake for a good morning of fishing.
Please keep our family in your prayers during this time of grief.
