  3. Bill Hartong Says:

    I have known him since the early 1980’s. He was extremely kind and helpful to me. Over years I learned he had superior intellect and encyclopedic knowledge of vintage Porsche’s. He was a cyclist and often rode his bike to work. He cared for a herd of ferrel cats almost like a hobby. He always spoke highly of Mattie his longtime wife and love of his life. Indeed he will be missed.

  6. Franklin D. Schick Says:

    I only knew Jim since about 2010, but quickly found we had a lot in common–Air Force, Wichita, and old Porsches. As he re-built the engine on my old car he told many interesting yarns about his life experiences–in his own colorful way. His love for Mattie was obvious. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.

  7. Andrea & Robert Says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Mattie and the rest of the family at this sad and difficult time. Jim you lived far away but we were always near in love. Sleep well Jim God bless xx

  8. John Adam Krugh Says:

    Jim was a wise, quite, proud and kind person.
    Jim rescued a 43 year old car for me and we became friends along the way…Talking shop in the garage was always a treat.

    The advice he gave me has helped me in many ways.
    I am grateful to have known Jim Conduff and will never forget him.

    Mattie, God Bless you and your family.
    Jim is smiling upon us today.

    Dear Aunt Mattie:

    I have many memories of Uncle Jim from when he was young, before he met you. I remember him playing baseball and basketball. My parents would take us to visit and we watched him play. He worked hard on the farm for his mom, and his sister–my mom–often commented about how much help he was. And I remember the years you and he lived in Wichita near us when I was still a child. There is one thing I know for sure. Jim Conduff loved you more than anything. Even more than his cars. We’ll all miss him, and we’re here for you. If you need us, just ask.

    Love, Deb & Family

  12. Al and Becky Basaldua Says:

    Mattie, we were so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. We enjoyed our neighborhood gatherings on Foster Ln and 89th Street and miss that connection. Our prayers are for you and all the family that adored Jim.

  13. Bill & Iris Menezes Says:

    I just learned of Jim’s passing and was taken by surprise because I knew that while he had some health issues he was a gallant fighter and would always triumph.
    I met Jim when I started my business here in Kansas in 1967,
    Jim was the service manager at Art Bunkers dealership and we formed a great friendship starting with my 1961 Porsche Cabriolet. Jim was exceptionally talented when it came to Porsches of all years,so he was my “go to” person when it came to servicing my cars. I could always count on Jim. He was HONEST FAIR and had a great personality. He was my friend and I will miss him!!!
