James "Jim" William Conklin, 77, passed away at home in Henderson, Nev., on May 1, 2022.

He was born Feb. 28, 1945, in Lebanon, to Eugene Conklin and Ruth Johnston Conklin.

He married Carol Marie Ashlock in Sweet Home, on Feb. 14, 1970.

They moved to Nevada in 1977 from Sweet Home.

James worked as an autobody technician and enjoyed his job so much he did it as a hobby at home. Later in his life he gained a passion for building radio-controlled planes and flying them. His grandchildren were his greatest passion.
