James W. “Jim” Eggers

February 7, 1925 – April 9, 2019

Founder and President of Eggers Consulting before retiring in 2014.  Preceded in death by parents, Paul and Opal Eggers; son, Mark D. Eggers.  Survived by wife (Little Sweetheart) of 71 years, Marjorie; son, Jim S. Eggers; daughter, Barbara Bucher (Bill); brother, Chuck Eggers; grandchildren: Jim P. Eggers (Kelli), Jenny Eggers, Jason Eggers (Lindsay), Tara Bucher (fiancé, Ryan Kortus), and Ryan Bucher (April); great-grandchildren: Evan, Jack, Reese, Nathan, Alyssa, Roselina, Caleb, and Eli.

The Family will receive friends on Friday, April 26th from 5pm to 7pm at the West Center Chapel.  SERVICES: Saturday, April 27th at 10:30am, St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 15050 W. Maple Rd.  Interment, Evergreen Memorial Park.  Memorials are suggested to St. Andrew United Methodist Church or Methodist Hospital Foundation.


Jim was an active member of St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church, as well as Downtown Rotary Club, Tangier Shrine Club, and Methodist Hospital Board of Directors.  He was also a Board Member of Guideposts, New York; a long-time member of National Association of Personnel Services; an active member of the Republican Party (national, state, and local affiliates); and a 32nd Degree Free Mason.  Jim’s involvement with all these organizations reflected his strong Christian faith and his belief in the goodness of people.

He was a devoted husband of 71 years to Marjorie, and their marriage continues to be a model for family and friends whom Jim regaled with marital anecdotes as well as the retelling of the “costly” honeymoon trip to Des Moines, Iowa in 1947.

Anyone who knew Jim, loved Jim; and he loved them. With his positive attitude towards life, Jim influenced the lives of family, employees, and friends.  For 94 years he had a great and fruitful life, and he is an example to many of how to live a God-filled life.  As a mentor and teacher, and as a father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, he would listen, guide and help when needed, offering advice, comments about loving and caring for one another, and encouraging a positive outlook for each day, almost until his last breath.

    Jim’s parents Paul and Opal Eggers were valued friends in our farming neighborhood in Knoxville.

    Growing up in the 1950’s in a small town in Iowa, my brothers and I were so fortunate to be surrounded by the friends and family of both of our parents. In that rather sizable collection of grandparents, cousins, acquaintances and neighbors, our Uncle Jim always stood out with his infectious laugh, penchant for nicknames and gregarious chatter. Ever upbeat, he encouraged my brothers and I to always be learning, to see our glass as half full as well as to “think big” and reach for the stars. My beloved Uncle Jim was an especially great influence in my life and he will always have a special place in my heart.

    Sadly, he was preceded in death by his nephew Conrad C. Eggers but survived by his niece Candace Eggers Nelson (Roger); nephew Clark J. Eggers (Danielle); great nephews and nieces David (Christina); Grace (Greg); Sally (Tony), Allison, Andrew, John, Mary, Mayala & Milo.
