James was wonderful presence and volunteer at Prince of Peace Catholic School.  As he struggled with his illness over the last couple of years, he continued to volunteer and be there for his children, wife and family.  All the while, he was full of joy and goodwill for everyone he encountered.  He was an inspiration to many with his display of grace and perseverance in the face of suffering.  He will be greatly missed but always remembered as a kind soul who put his family first.

Wow!!! Sadness hits my heart but recalling fond and fun memories. There are so many stories I could tell about My dear sweet friend James Supulski. The first time I ever met James, I worked at the county attorneys office. He had to come bail old Sweet Greg Acree out of a bind from bouncing checks. Lol. I can’t tell you how many Kappa digs I met back then when I ran the bad check division. James was always there during those years. One of my favorite stories was out at our house in Plano. I wish I could remember what it was but for some reason Scotty needed something out of our tree or there was some reason we needed to get up the tree and no one could do it. There’s a popping sound we make with our mouths when talking about this. Like suction cups. Because here he came and climbed that tree like a tree frog... pop pop pop... problem solved. There has been so much laughter over this and his nick name has been tree frog since 1988. I’ve maintained contact with James here and there over the years and it’s a friendship like a day never passed. I will miss you my friend. Your heart was true and you were a good friend to many. A good brother to the Kappa Sigs, clearly to your brother as I read his post. You loved your wife and kids and I saw and could hear your love for them in your voice. I know you're in a better place. But the good Lord has taken you much too soon. I wish I had seen some recent post so I could have called. I hate that I won’t hear your fun voice again and your kind and real advice. A good man, friend and brother has been lost. Forever love and remember you my friend. I’m afraid of what heaven has become with both you and Greg there. I’m guessing it’s full of a lot of fun and laughs. Tell our sweet friend and brother Steve Cleary hey too. Can’t believe some of my favorite people in the world left it so soon. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND. LOVE TINA AND THE HUTCHISON FAMILY. Prayers and blessings for your family. I know they are feeling lost too!!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Liebe Gisela, liebe Kirsten, liebe Angehörige,
wir sind sehr, sehr traurig und hilflos, denn was können wir schon tun bei so viel Leid?
Amerika ist ja schon immer weit von uns, aber jetzt empfinden wir es noch ferner.
So ist ein inniges Umarmen und Herzen leider unmöglich.
Alle tröstlich gemeinten Worte sind mehr oder weniger Luftblasen, die im Moment einfach nur platzen.
Es bleibt nur die Hoffnung, dass die Zeit lehrt, mit dem Schicksal zu leben.
In den Kindern lebt der geliebte James weiter, und wir denken, dass Ella und JT viel Freude und auch wieder Glück in die die Familie bringen.
Mögen die Tränen versiegen und Erleichterung bringen, dass eine Zukunft in liebevoller Erinnerung und Erfüllung wartet.
In aufrichtiger Liebe und Verbundenheit,
Onkel Friedrich und Tante Hannelore Bruder, mit Martina (und ihren Kindern Cerstin und Patrick) und Karin (und Heike)

We are very, very sad and helpless, because what can we do with so much suffering?
America has always been a long way from us, but now we feel it is even further away.
So a deep hug and sharing our hearts is unfortunately impossible.
All words meant to be comforting are more or less air bubbles that just burst at the moment.
The only hope that remains is that time teaches us to live with fate.
Beloved James lives on in the children, and we think Ella and JT will bring joy and happiness back to the family.
May the tears dry up and bring relief that a future awaits in loving memory and fulfillment.
In sincere love and solidarity,
