Jim led a good life, and raised a great family Best neighbor family we could ever ask for. Growing up with the Anderson's was a privilege for the Shirey's. I want to thank Jim for all the memories, and helping us to grow up right! Took me trout fishing along with his boys, taught us all baseball, provided baseball commentary from his back porch as we learned the game in his back yard. Coached his teams along side Dad's teams, always competing, always raising kids right. Mike, David, Theresa - our thoughts are prayers are with you. May "Jim" rest in peace. God Bless. -Guy & Patty Shirey

To Mike (who we'll always know as Mike or Pork), Dave (who we'll always know as Dino), Theresa (who had to put up with all of us idiot boys up on the hill!), and the entire Anderson family, the Shireys send their condolences on the loss of your dad, Jim. Great memories of him, playing ball with our Dad as we were all growing up, and then managing us all through little and senior league baseball. Will also remember those days in our backyards with them hitting us pop ups, playing "500", and sitting back laughing at us all while we were hammering each other playing "throw up and smear" football! We will not forget Jim; he was a really good man and neighbor. I will always remember him as that young catcher with the Clearfield Colts, guarding home plate...and now he's finally made it "home". Rest in peace Jim.
