James L. Hummeldorf

Morning View – Passed away on March 18, 2021 at the age of 86, after several days at home surrounded by those he loved. Jim proudly served in the US Army during the Korean War. After serving his country, he earned an Electrical Engineering degree and Juris Doctorate in Law from the University of Kentucky. He was a very accomplished businessman as the President and Founder of Actus, Inc. Jim was also the founder of the KY Santa Gertrudis Breeders Association. One of his favorite professions was through the Kenton County School District, where he worked as a substitute teacher and custodian for Scott High School before retiring. He was a man of many hats – literally and figuratively. A huge UK basketball fan, avid farmer, and tree planter.
