Jim Toner: friend, mentor, colleague, outdoorsman

It is with a very heavy heart we share this deeply sad news. Jim Toner, Director of the UMF Fitness & Recreation Center and founder of UMF’s Mainely Outdoors program, passed away July 16 at home, a victim of an unrelenting cancer that was first diagnosed last fall.

Jim was, for those who knew him, a man of remarkable integrity and decency. He was cherished by those who worked closely with him: UMF faculty, students and staff; UMF Athletics and Student Services departments; and the greater Farmington community. Jim is greatly missed.
