Jimmie L. ‘Jim’ Andersen

May 5, 1924 - Feb. 19, 2017

Jim Andersen, 92, of Big Timber passed away Sunday February 19, 2017, at Pioneer Medical Center. The following was written by Jim….

“I am writing my own obituary — why burden someone else in trying to make me look good. If you know me, you can make your own decision. Nancy and I had been married more than 40 years, we enjoyed a good marriage. She had three children and I had two, all from previous marriages. If you know them, you can judge them for yourself, if you don’t know them, you don’t give a rats. 

We decided to move to the nursing home, Nancy because she needed care and help. I agreed because the chores became too tiresome. I never realized how big a job it was until I became a ‘wife.’ I have placed an application to Heaven because they probably have better golf courses. Also, I prefer an angel caddy to a witch caddy. I have visions of birdying the seventh hole, as the ecstatic angel ignores the botched previous six holes. 

I enjoyed that forgiveness; I don’t want to dwell on my sins. America has experienced a steady stature of loss since I was young. In spite of the downward trend, I am still proud to be an American rather than a Muslim male.  I have heard that Muslim men are rewarded (?) with 40 virgins at death, how cruel if true, can you imagine the work entailed in training 40 virgins! I can only hope that Obama’s 40 virgins have some rebels. Obituary means I have departed the scene, please no calls.” 

Cremation has taken place and private services will be held at a later date. Condolences for the family may be made at www.stenbergfuneralhome.com
