James Vanden Boogart

It is with a most heavy heart and deep grief that I share this news with you. Jim Vanden Boogart passed away on Friday, November 24th.

As most of you know, Jim was an integral member of BCCRWE, leading our group as president for many years. He not only helped spare our neighborhood from the Invenergy wind project that would have had most of our families living in the shadows of turbines, but was equally devoted to those around the world that contacted him for his experience and vast knowledge. All while doing whatever he could to help those already harmed by injustice.  He fought for truth and bravely exposed those that dealt otherwise.  A man rooted in God and committed to personal responsibility, Jim possessed more compassion and patience than any person I have ever known.  A talented writer, an expert mason, and intensely creative.  He will be missed as a husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle......and as a dear, dear friend.  His smile, laughter, joy and example can not be replaced.  Rest in Peace Jim.
