Obituary for James R. Gardner

On Thursday, September 26, 2019, James Robert Gardner passed away at the age of 63. Jim was born on February 27, 1956, in Highland, IN to Robert and Elizabeth (Kervan) Gardner. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1978 and worked as a director of business management in Illinois. Jim was an avid golfer, a great cook, and a seasoned traveler. He had compassion for those who had little, spending much of his last years serving the homeless people of Chicago. Jim was preceded in death by his mother and father. He is survived by his brother Joe, his nephew, Nicholas, his niece, Kendall, and several cousins. A memorial service will be held at a later date at the University of Notre Dame. Jim would be pleased if donations in his name were given to any homeless shelter.
