Jim Knust, Bass -- Ferdinand IN -- a founding member of our choir, Jim passed away on 9/25/16 at the age of 76 after a battle with cancer. Jim loved to sing. As a young boy, he sang in the children's choir at St. Ferdinand Catholic church, then went on to sing for 60 years in the church's adult choir. Jim served two terms on the Celebration Singers' board of directors, (Term1: 1/2012-1/2015, Term2: 1/2015-9/2016) serving as its president at the time of his death. We will miss Jim's quiet, strong leadership.
