Jim died as large as he lived. During his Thanksgiving break from school, he and friends were hang gliding when he experienced a sudden cardiac event. He managed to land safely but collapsed soon after. Efforts to resuscitate were unsuccessful.
All who knew him—of any age-- are invited to come and dance at a family-friendly rock-and-roll celebration of his life on Dec. 10 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Redding Elks Club, 250 Elk Dr. Redding, CA.
Contributions can be made to the Jim Kennedy Memorial River Trail Fund at the Shasta Regional Foundation, 1335 Arboretum Dr., Suite B, Redding, CA 96003. The fund will be used to help maintain and improve the Sacramento River Trail, which Jim loved.
