I was just getting to know Jim. He was a good neighbor and I never heard an unkind word from him about anyone. I’m very sorry to hear of his passing.
James M. Gist, Jr., age 73, passed away on Monday, September 6, 2021. James was born to James M. Gist, Sr. and Thelma (Reutter) Gist on December 16, 1947 in Evansville, Indiana.
James was a kind hearted man, a jack of all trades with a funny sense of humor who enjoyed giving random surprises. His long career was devoted to sales and solutions in the bearing and power transmission industry at Bearing Service, Kaman, and Bearing Distributors. In his spare time he enjoyed boats, tinkering on things, railroads, model building, intricate restorations and witty dad jokes. He especially enjoyed and loved spending time with his family.

He is survived by his daughter Jasmine (Gary) Folz and his son Scott (Jennifer) Gist; his grandchildren Jamison Gist, Kendall Gist, Elijah Folz, and Ellie Folz; his wife and close friend Nancy Gist.
