James (Whiskurs) Lynn Lorg Sr. age 79, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at Woodland Heights Hospital in Lufkin TX with his daughter and Grandson by his side.

Jim was Born to Arthur and Annis (Goss) Lorg September 13th, 1942, in Springfield MO. Jim lived there until he graduated from Parkview High School and joined the United States Air force in 1960. He then moved to Abilene TX where he was stationed at Dyess Air force base and became an aircraft mechanic. Jim was a man of many talents, a Jack of all trades. His jobs included race car driver, truck driver, mechanic, electrician, and builder. Oooh… and even a moonshiner, the list goes on.

Jim lived in many locations including Missouri, California and Texas. Settling in Jasper TX in 2004 he quickly became part of the community, often volunteering his time and talents while his health allowed. He overcame lots of obstacles in his life but the one he was most proud of was when he decided to turn his life around and stop drinking after 60+ years. He then dedicated his life to helping others do the same through sponsorship and AA.

He is proceeded in death by his wife Linda, his parents Arthur and Annis , his sister and brother in law Bill and Betty Blakeslee, and his grandsons Garren Bookman and Anthony Cole.
