To the Lasley family and your mom, Your dad and mom were awesome neighbors to my dad. I am sure my dad was their to greet your dad in heaven right along side of God. He was also my algebra teacher in high school and I have very fond memories of him being an awesome teacher. Jean Katzenberger Wuollet

I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Lasley, he was such a fun guy and always had something smart to say to me. Mr. Lasley had daily coffee with my dad for many, many years and since my dad passed away 15 years ago, every time I see Mr. Lasley he always checked in on me just like me dad would have. Made me feel so good, I knew he cared. He sure will be missed by me and many others, he was truly one of a kind! My sympathies to his family.

Dear Ann & Scott & Paul and families, I’m so sorry that you’ve lost your loved one. I really enjoyed working with “Las” by supervising at ballgames years ago. Good memories!

My catcher when I pitched. My fellow Auggie. My competitor when I coached at Marshall. My companion when at the State Tournament. And my friend of 65+ years. A wonderful man with a great sense of humor. Condolences to Ann and Family

Ann, Paul and Scott, So sorry for your loss. It’s hard to believe he’s gone after just seeing him two weeks ago. Jim taught me algebra and I learned to love it. It set the direction of my college education and career. He was passionate about it and expected excellence. He also taught me to drive. My kids say I need a refresher now. I have so many fun memories of card nights and the poking he liked to do. He will be deeply missed. Love and hugs, Natalie and Steve

So sorry to hear of Mr. Lasley's passing. He had a significant impact on my high school years, starting as my geometry teacher and driving instructor and certainly in his role as athletic director. He cared deeply about the athletes/students he was involved with and was a champion for women's athletics and creating a level playing field for all students. He celebrated the victories on the court/field/track/course, etc, but more importantly taught us to hold our heads high and be respectful and aware of our place in the town/school. Athletics was a privilege and he made sure we realized the wonderful opportunity we had to compete and also set a good example for the next generation of kids looking up to us. This is a lesson I learned in part from Mr. Lasley and will strive to teach my kids some day when they get a tad bit older. My sympathies. He was a great man and will be missed.

I remember Mr. Lasley very well as my teacher in Minneota High School. He was a very great teacher and fair. He often talked to us what life would be like in about 2020(surprisingly), and he was right on! how he knew, I do not know, most of us did not believe it, but remember it oh so well!! so sorry and sympathy to the family, and prayers for peace.

I am so sorry for your your family’s loss. Mr. Lasley was my 10th grade geometry teacher (1996-1997). He had clear expectations, he was fair and he was passionate. He did not let anyone walk all over him. I loved that about him and enjoyed having him be my teacher. He definitely made an impression on me and I appreciate his dedication to education. May his memory live on. Best, Sarah (Nelson) Quesenberry RVHS class of 1999

Ann, Paul and Scott, our deepest sympathies to the family. Jim was a wonderful man and a great second cousin. After my father passed away last year, he was one of the first to reach out with his support. He was a dear friend of my mother Pat and my father Norman and the entire Sieberg-Musser clan and I am certain so many others. Again, deepest sympathies on your loss. Gary and Martha Carlson
