Jim Haskins

September 7, 2017

After dealing with a very aggressive cancer for the last eight months Jim Haskins passed away peacefully this morning.
Plans have not yet been finalized.


As Jim wished, I’m inviting you all to share with me your favorite “JIM” stories at a luncheon for his special friends.  Please join me at Falcon Dunes Golf Club,15100 Northern Avenue, Waddell, AZ 85355, PH: 623-535-8355, on Friday, 10 November, 12:00 noon.  Knowing Jim’s unique sense of humor, I’m hoping to hear stories I’ve never heard before.

Hope to see you then.



RSVP to: Ray Boucher,
