With profound respect and admiration, we honor the life of James (Jim)
E. Rucks, born on Jan. 21, 1937, in Truman, Minnesota, and who passed
away on Feb. 6, 2024.

Known for his dedication, loyalty, and support, Jim was a trusted friend
to those who had the privilege of knowing him. He was a devoted family
man, who along with his wife, were successful business owners of Rucks
Cabinets & Doors from 1971 to 2006.

As a longtime resident of Lake Havasu City since 1971, he was a proud
member of the Mount Olive Lutheran Church, the London Bridge Rotary, and
the Jaycees. His loyalty and support were unwavering, and his love for
his family was the cornerstone of his life.

A man of varied interests, Jim enjoyed golfing, boating, square dancing,
and traveling across the country in their RV. Jim was a collector of
everything eagles and enjoyed sharing a drink with family and friends.

Jim is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, DeLores; daughters, Dawn
(Matt) Rossman and Robin (Criss) Morgan; granddaughters, Amanda and
Sarah (Aaron); great-grandson, Conrad, who is on the way; sisters, Mary
Ann (Ron), Myrna (Greg), and Kris (Mark).

Tharen; and sisters, Bonnie and Charlene.
