Jim passed away peacefully from complications of lung cancer on Saturday, January 15, at St. Charles Hospital in Bend.
He was born in Omaha, Nebraska, to Jim and Levina Concannon and raised in Mason City, Iowa. He was a brother to Mary and Omar, father to three sons, and longtime resident of Sisters, moving here in 1990.
Jim was well-known throughout the Sisters community and had many friends and acquaintances. In his early years, he was employed in the profession of land surveying.
When he moved to Sisters, he worked for local businesses, including Sisters Bakery.
Before retiring, he worked at Lonesome Water Bookstore for his best friend, Tom. In retirement, he could be found volunteering for Habitat ReStore and helping a friend and her children in the community with their needs.
His hobbies included hiking in the mountains and spending time at the Oregon coast camping near the beach. He was an avid photographer, baker, and all-around handyman. He had a gypsy soul and loved the outdoors. His son will spread his ashes at several beautiful places on his way back to Iowa. His family would like to thank his healthcare providers and the St. Charles Family Care Clinic in Sisters for keeping an eye on him.
Although gone, he will be remembered fondly by his friends, family, and community. Be content that he was able to enjoy the beauty of Central Oregon the last three decades of his life.
