    James Allyn Lester, 38, of DeLand, Fla., formerly of Danbury, passed
    away on April 28th from injuries sustained in a traffic accident.
    Jim was born in Norwalk on January 5, 1967. He lived in Danbury,
    attended Danbury Schools, and worked in the area until relocating with
    his family to Florida last summer.
    Jim was an outgoing generous person, and a true friend, who lived his
    life to the fullest.
    Jim's first love was his family, but his passion. was motorcycles. Jim
    began racing motorcycles in 1992, in Loudon, N.H. He became an
    accomplished professional motorcycle racer competing at various
    racetracks throughout the country, winning many championships and
    awards. Despite many injuries his courage and strength kept him coming
    back to the sport he loved so much, until an injury suffered during a
    practice session forced him to retire from competition. Jim's memories
    of racing and the people he met were very important to him. He had
    recently accepted a position in the motorcycle industry. Of all his
    experiences, what was most important to him was being a Daddy to his
    beloved children, Jimmy Jr. and Rachel; they are what he loved and
    cherished most. He will be very sadly missed and lovingly remembered by
    all those who knew him.
    Jim is survived by his wife, Karin (Mohan) Lester, their two precious
    children, James Jr. and Rachel of DeLand Fla., his parents, Patricia
    (Forbes) and Allyn Lester of Deltona, Fla; two brothers, Thomas and
    Scott, both of Deltona, Fla., a niece; a nephew, several aunts, uncles
    and cousins; as well as many many friends.
    A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Joseph Church, Danbury,
    on Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m.
    Friends may call at the Cornell Memorial Home, 247 White St., Danbury,
    on Thursday, May 5 between the hours of 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
    In lieu of flowers, an account has been set up to help support Jim's
    children. Checks may be made payable to Karin Lester and sent c/o
    Connecticut Pain Care, 109 Newtown Road, Danbury, CT. 06810.

    A Send Off To Remember

    There's nothing easy about losing a friend. You can
    not escape the deep hollow feeling in your heart, no
    matter what you do. The realness of the sensation
    feels a bit like heartburn, a bit like dehydration, a bit
    like someone is standing on your chest; and no
    matter what you do to try and distract yourself, the
    feeling is ever pervasive, Pain, loneliness, sorrow;
    you just can't escape it.

    As Jim discovered, life is short. You can either
    guide it or let it guide you. If you don't take control,
    you never know where you'll wind up and you cant
    blame circumstance for misguiding you. You must
    seize the moment, work hard and enjoy life. Which is
    what Jim did."It was a short life
    lived well"
