So very sorry to see this. I worked at Village Market when he did. We celebrated our birthdays the same day, but because we worked different shifts, we couldn’t celebrate together. He always had a smile when he saw me, both there at Village and at Walmart when I saw him there, and a friendly word. Prayers for the family.
Sincerest condolences to the Beldon family. Mr. Jim was the kindest man. I will sincerely miss him. RiP Mr. “B”. Penny Johnson, Friend and Neighbor.

With deepest sympathy ,
I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. When I was about 9 or 10, he used to be my Sabbath School teacher at the old Mendon church. Rose Mary also was a teacher. I hadn’t seen him for many years and one day while in Walmart, I seen him as a greeter, so I went up to ask him if he was Jim Beldon? After that whenever I was in Walmart and he was working, we would visit a little while. Such a nice guy. He will be greatly missed.
To His family, you are in my prayers.
Very sorry to see this. I worked with Jim at Village Market. He was a very quite, kind and caring man. I truly enjoyed working with Jim. I always enjoyed all the conversation we had. Prayers for his family.
