I was so very sad to hear of Jim’s passing. I have many happy memories of time spent with Jim and Terri at Carver Ranch for sheepdog clinics and trials. Fun and great food and fellowship, come rain or sun.
It was a joy to watch Jim ride a horse, he was one with the horse. When Liam named him Papa Cowboy, it was the perfect grandpa name.
I will miss coming in from the field to ask what are we watching? Always a good old Western on TV.
Thank you for your kindness and hospitality. Happy Trails, Mr. Carver, and sympathy to all your family.

Jim always enjoyed all of us coming to the herding clinics that Terri Carver had at their place. Jim always friendly would wander down to the barn to do his chores and visit with us. I always remember Jim watching his favorite shows Gunsmoke and The Ponderosa.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Carver when I went to Terri and Jim’s ranch to pick up a puppy. He shared with me stories about growing up in Florida, about training and riding horses and the adventures of owning and working on a ranch.

I am so sorry for your loss Terri. Hold all your memories of great times close to your heart.

I have such fond memories of spending 10 plus years of weekends at the ranch. Jim was always welcoming as we “invaded” for clinics and weekly lessons. He and a Terri were gracious hosts when I was invited to eat several holiday dinners with the family. I loved the fact that Mr Carver always brought Max leftovers back After his morning breakfast out and how he loved all the horses. I had such delight watching him show Liam how to do ranch chores and then listening to Liam tell me the ranch “rules.” I also loved the Pa Pa Cowboy stories of feeding animals and riding in the gator. Mr Carver you will be missed. Always quick with a joke or political topic I will miss you. Rest In Peace.

We enjoyed many trips to the Carver Ranch visiting Terri and Jim; enjoyed some good times and good conversations. Jim was a good man and always so pleasant to be around. He told many a fun story during our visits, and was always helpful if we needed something. One of the last memories I have of Jim was Jim being so supportive to me while I attempted my first parking job with the big trailer on their ranch. He was awesome! A true cowboy, just like the ones he enjoyed watching on tv.

Jim was truly one of a kind and will be deeply missed.

Jim, I am hoping you are resting easy, surrounded by your loved ones, which I know would most definitely include a few of your favorite horses.

God bless Jim, Terri, and all of the family.

We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Jimmy’s passing. Losing our dad’s just three years apart almost to the day is so very hard. We know the pain and sorrow all too well. Dad always spoke often about his younger brother being quite the character, as well as a daredevil.

He will be truly missed.

Love to all,

Sending love and peace to the Carver family. Hans and I have many fond memories of times spent with Jim and Donna, and sincerely appreciated the opportunities they gave us with Tweety and Missy. Showing those two mares brought so much joy to all of us. Through these times, we developed a sincere love and respect for each other, and the friendship and kindness felt by Jim and Donna touched our family in ways we can never express. Much love to all during this difficult time.

I met Jim 14 years ago when I bought a Aussie from his wife Terri. Jim and Terri welcomed me into their home on several occasions as we trained my new pup on goats and sheep. Jim and I would share stories about Live Oak Fl and how he picked watermelon on his family farm as a kid, we shared great meals and MORE stories driving from the Ranch to Royers for their speciality Pheasant and cherry pie. I was happy to have seen Jim at “work” breaking and training cutting horses, with his devoted ranch dog Max by his side...I was able to capture these moments in pictures which made special gifts to repay him for his hospitality. He was especially happy when his step son Nick would visit and make him a gourmet brisket or when his step daughter Lindsay gave him a grandson. Liam worshipped his Papa Cowboy and would help him with all of the daily chores. Thanks Mr. Carver for letting me be part of the family...May you be at Peace!
