Jim Brink taught me and my sons Zachary, Elliot, and Ethan about Jesus at St James. He was the best teacher and advocate for Christ. He will be sadly missed. Until we all meet again in heaven. God bless you. Jim Wood

I had him as my third grade teacher back in the early 90's. He was definitely my favorite! I was just thinking about him last week, and then see this. My prayers go out to the family, may God give you comfort in your time of need.

I went through 8 years at St. James and 4 years of West Catholic. I received 2 bachelors degrees. Among the numerous teachers that I've had, I consider Mr. Brink as the best, and my favorite. It's a tribute to him and to the job he loved doing and did so well. He made going to school fun and I looked forward to it. We shared a birthday as well.

RIP Mr. Brink. You've earned it. May the Good Lord Bless you and welcome you into His Kingdom.
