Obituary for James Edward Mansheim

Jim passed in the early morning of September 22, 2018 at Stanford Hospital with his wife, daughter, son and daughter-in-law by his side. Jim was born in 1933 in Salida, Colorado to Frank and Caroline Mansheim, where he grew up and spent his formative years hunting and fishing with his family of four brothers and two sisters. He graduated from Salida High, served two years in the Army, completed his Baccalaureate degree in Accounting and an MBA from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he taught and then obtained work as an Auditor for the General Accountability Office.
Jim married Rose Marie Eugster in 1964, and together they raised two children, moving to Mountain View, California, in 1973, where they lived through his career with G.A.O. and retirement. Jim was proud of his service to his country and state, loved being outdoors, traveling with his buddy Doug, and gardening. His later years were spent playing Liar's Dice and enjoying his many friends at the local Elks and Eagles clubs.
Jim was preceded in death by his sisters, Mary and Marge, and his brother Bill. He is survived by his wife Rose Marie of Mountain View, CA, his daughter Kristen Mansheim of Fremont, CA, his son Mark Mansheim (Netrani Sharma) of Las Vegas, NV, his brothers Frank Mansheim of Arvada, CO, John (Linda) Mansheim of Grand Junction, CO, and Dick (Karen) Mansheim of Salida, CO, as well as many nieces and nephews.
