Jim G. Church, 75, passed away unexpectedly on October 21, 2017. Jim was born the son of Claude and Bernice Humphries Church on May 18, 1942 in Washougal, Washington. He moved to Yakima, Washington with his family in 1967, and has been in Yakima County ever since. Jim was married on July 2, 1962 to Lola Reynolds and welcomed four children to their family. 

Jim was a person that believed in hard work. He worked full time for C & C Hop Farms for over 45 years, doing anything and everything that he could to help. When he wasn’t working he enjoyed fishing and being outside with his dogs, especially Wendy. He loved anything to do with western culture, watching movies, reading magazines or novels, music, clothing, listening to music more than anything else recently.
Jim is survived by three children, Tina (Tim) King, Jerry (Alyce) Church, and Deedee (Steven) Proffit. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Ashlee, Colton, Matthew, Joshua, Danny, Mike, Tessa, Jennifer, Caitlin, and Harvest, as well as 23 great grandchildren.
