Trigard founder James "Big Jim" Darby named to Vermilion County Illinois Business Hall of Fame

Big Jim is the Walt Disney of our company. For more than fifty years, his family's business has flourished to the credit of his entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and dedication to our community. What began as a small family business has grown to provide local jobs for more than 100 employees working in funeral service, manufacturing, customer service, grounds maintenance and horticulture.

James "Big Jim" Darby
Big Jim loves his community and Vermilion County. But it's not an abstract concept of community. He is delighted by meeting each individual person and learning their story. His family has built their business on relationships, and Big Jim continually emphasizes the importance of building strong bridges.

Big Jim was selected as one of four nominees that will be recognized and permanently and publicly memorialized into Vermilion County history at a new display at the Vermilion County Museum.  The Hall of Fame inauguration is set for Sunday, March 4, 2012.

We at Trigard believe Big Jim's lasting success and dedication to his community have more than earned him this great honor.
