Jim Guillory D.O. passed peacefully at home on February 14. His wife Linda related that he had gone to take a nap on Sunday morning and passed away in his sleep. Jim put up a courageous battle for many years with bone cancer and had been in a state of partial remission but the recent news was not positive.
Those that knew Jim couldn’t fail to be impressed with his positive spirit and impish smile. He truly loved sailing and attended a portion of the most recent Commodore’s Cup to see the boats in competition. He had a fierce intellect and continued to conduct pubic health research until the time of his death. At the family’s wishes there was no memorial ceremony and a contribution to the animal shelter of your choice is suggested. A brief obituary appears in the KC Star newspaper: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/kansascity/obituary.aspx?n=jim-guillory&pid=177741166&fhid=20442
