Obituary of Jim Shumway
James "Jim" William Shumway, 57, of Parker, Colorado, entered into heaven on August 9th, 2022 as a result of a single engine plane crash at Centennial Airport, Douglas County.
Jim was born in Salt Lake City, UT on March 10th, 1965 to Ronald F. Shumway and Rosa L. Basham Shumway. He was the 2nd of 3 children.
Jim was raised in Hinkley, Millard County, UT. He graduated from Hinkley Elementary and Delta High School.
Jim learned how to work hard from a very young age. He raised animals and grew giant gardens on the family farm. But he learned how to truly labor work alongside his dad in his construction business.
Jim was called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Alberta, Calgary MISSION, 1984-1986.
Jim finished his degree at Southern Utah University in Cedar City where he made lifelong friends. Jim's quiet and unassuming nature and fun sense of humor drew people to him.
Jim met Rebecca while working in Sedona in 1991. They were married in the St. George Temple on May 22, 1993.
While living in Las Vegas from 1993-2002, the Shumway family grew to include 4 children: Brittany, Alex, Ashley and Lilly. He received his MBA at UNLV.
In 2002 they moved to Parker, Colorado where they currently love living and had their fifth child, Maxwell.
Since 2005 Jim has loved working at ET investments, LLC with so many wonderful people.
Jim started flying in 2017 and got his pilots license in 2018 which quickly became a passion.
When he wasn't working or flying, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, building and grilling and of course, his family.
The world is a darker, less colorful place without Jim. He was a true gentleman. His kindness, compassion and generosity has touched more lives than he ever realized. His warm smile will continue in our hearts and memories but his presence leaves a gaping hole in our lives.
