Jim Albers

April 1, 1960 — January 15, 2019

Goodland, KS

Longtime Goodland, Kanas resident James E. “Jim” Albers, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at the Goodland Regional Medical Center in Goodland, KS.  He was 58 years old.

Jim was born on April 1, 1960 in Oakley, Kansas to George F. and Helen Joan (Depperschmidt) Albers.  He was one of seven children.  He attended school in Colby, Kansas and graduated from Colby High School in 1979.

On June 9, 1989, Jim married Loraine M. Oren at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Colby.  To this union, four children; Sarah, Amanda, Troy and Christine were born.

Jim worked at CASE IH for about 40 years between Colby and Goodland before going to work at American Implement in Wheeler, Kansas as a Diesel Parts Mechanic.  Jim had a love for music and his faith.  You could always find Jim playing on his guitar or doing maintenance work at the Catholic Church in Goodland where he and his family were devout members. He loved playing croquet with Christine and DJing at any event. He loved any dog he came in contact with and they all loved him the same. Most importantly he loved his family and was willing to do anything for them.

Preceding him in death was his father and one brother Gregory Albers.

He is survived by his mother Joan Albers of Kansas City, MO, his wife Loraine of the home in Goodland, his children Sarah Albers of Hays, KS, Amanda Albers of McPherson, KS, Troy (Braylyn) Albers of Goodland, and Christine Albers of Goodland.  He is also survived by his siblings, Mike (Patti) Albers of Colby, KS, Fred (Susan) Albers of Overland Park, KS, Bart (Mary Kay) Albers of Lawrence, KS, Mary (Rod) Jordan of Liberty, MO and Tom (Tina) Albers of Hays, KS.  He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.
