James Darrell Minten of Arbuckle, affectionately known as Jim, Jimmy or Uncle Jimmy
passed away peacefully on October 28, 2023 after a brief illness. Jim was a loving and devoted husband to Tammy Minten for 40 plus years.
Although he did not have any children he loved his animals, especially his Australian Shepherd “Jake” with whom he is now reunited with. Jim loved riding his Harley Davidson, spending time in Alaska, visiting with family and friends, and he loved food. He had a “Jolly” laugh, one that would make you laugh along with him. Jim was a truck driver for Hively and Sons Trucking, Doug Koebel Trucking, Beneto Tank Lines (he was very proud of his shiny truck!) and was a diesel mechanic for Penske Truck Leasing.
Jim will be missed by his wife Tammy Minten, Mother and Father in-law Walt and Bev Wolford, close friends Ron and Patti Jo Powell, close friend Gary Ciemny, nephew Jeff (Alma) Harris, nieces Isabel and Jazmyn Harris. Jim wished to be cremated and have his ashes spread over Alaska. No memorial services or funeral is planned.
