Jim L. Sloan, a resident of Willow Springs, passed away late Saturday evening, July 28, 2018, while at his home with his family at his side, due to natural causes. Born January 25, 1947 in Kingman, Kansas to Wilbur Carroll and Doris Jean (Sitts) Sloan, he was 71 years old.
Jim attended the schools in Kansas and also Kansas State University for two years. He served two years in the U.S. Army as a medic in the hospitals in Germany, attaining the rank of SP5. Jim was employed at Waggoner Lumber Co. for 20 years and it has been said that he knew the store "like the back of his hand," and knew where to find anything and performed a variety of jobs. He married Sandra K. Turner on May 18, 1984 in Hutchinson, KS. In his younger days he loved to go "Jeeping," and that past-time evolved into 3-wheeling, and later 4-wheeling. He also had an interest in woodworking, and was considered a computer guru. However, he truly enjoyed his photography, especially of the places they traveled to. Missing you now and forever.
He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife Mary Ellen Sloan; and infant son, Jeremy Jason Sloan.
He is survived by his wife Sandy; his son, Matt Sloan, of Kansas; his daughter, Anjolene Boster and her husband, Andrew of Wisconsin, grandchildren, Gabby Kaufman of Kansas and Andrew Boster, Jr. also of Wisconsin; brothers, Dan Sloan and his wife, Marilyn of Mississippi, and Dave Sloan of Colorado. Further surviving are several nieces and nephews.
A visitation will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, August 3, 2018 with a memorial service immediately following at 11:00 a.m. at Willow Funeral Home with Pastor David Lovan officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of Willow Funeral Home. On-line condolences may be left at www.willowspringsfuneralhome.com
