Born Sept. 16, 1928, in Red Bluff, he was the only child of William and Maude Bell Jennings. He spent his childhood in Red Bluff, Paynes Creek and Napa. Being a teenager in Napa, he became one of the "three musketeers" with his ever-faithful buddies Little Dick and Big Bill Bishop and their wives Wanda and Lois (respectfully). They shared many mischievous adventures, creating memories'and tall tates/ia i. .... friendsiaip that iai{id' throughbtit ' their'long ........ journey. Wanda Bishop is the only survivor of the infamous group. After graduating from Napa High School, he was part owner of a tire shop in Willits and then owner of a small bar, "Al's Redwood Room." Somewhere in between he met the love of his life, Jeanne Fulcher, from Portola. Their long-distance relationship stood the test of time. In 1970, Jim and Jeanne were married in Reno, Nevada. They bought a new home there for themselves and Jeanne's sons Warren and Brian. Jim and Jeanne always had a flair for entertaining and even dug out half of the basement (by hand) for a large swimming pool, the entertainers' delight. Jim worked as a liquor salesman, earning a reputation and the title "Whiskey Jim." He retired in 1990 and then they moved t their first cabin at Lake Davis. Jim and Jeanne spent many years entertaining friends, family and business associates, traveling, playing cards and hosting parties for every occasion. Whiskey Jim lived life to the fullest and had a story to tell for each and every adventure and a new joke that always fit the occasion. Jim was a member of the Calpine Elks Club, spending many Saturdays playing and/or calling bingo, sharing quality time with his many friends and acquaintances. His life revolved around people the more the better. He never met a stranger. It seems that no matter where he went everyone there knew him; judging by the empty card boxes we think at least 2,000 people were the recipients of "my card." Jim and Jeanne built one of the first cabins at Lake Davis and, finally, their dream home on the top of the mountain overlooking the lake where Jim lived the rest of his days. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, William and Maude Jennings; son Steven J. Jennings; and his wife, Jeanne Jennings. His survivors include his son Ted (Diane) Jennings; daughter Terry Jennings;-s0n Warren (Con) Jennings; and grandchildren and ......... great-grandchildren Christa (Jeff), Jennifer, Travis, Daria, Brett, Richie, Summer, J'anna, Steven R., Tianna, Linese, Luke Craig, Madison, Kaleb, Christian and Justin. A memorial service will be held Saturday, Jan. 17, I p.m. at the Calpine Elks Lodge, Highway 70 at Maybe. The placement of his ashes and celebration of life will be scheduled this summer at Lake Davis. The date and time will be announced at a later date. James 'Jim' Leonard Stallings Jr. 2g:? . . ,!:2.
