My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Ferguson for your loss. No doubt he lived a long fulfilled life and his family will miss him dearly. Hopefully you can draw comfort from Gods word, as I have, where he promises us that there is going to be a resurrection and that we can be reunited with our loved ones once again - right here on the earth. (John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:9,10) If you’d like to have more comforting thoughts from Gods word, and his plan for our future, please visit the Bible based website -

What a great Math teacher. He always had time for you if you didn't understand something. He offered a way for us to bring up our grade a whole level if you did 100 Geometry problems each six weeks and got them right. We really appreciated him . RIP Mr. Ferguson. Well done!

When I think of Mr. Ferguson I can say I was very privileged to have crossed paths with him. He provided me guidance in so many ways not only in the classroom but also while we were bird hunting. When he hit the desk with his fist to wake you up, that got my attention and it hasn't left some 50+ years later.

It was my great honor to have been a colleague of Jimmy Ferguson. But more importantly he was my friend. He was a true professional and outstanding math teacher. I spent many hours talking with him about physics, mathematics and bird hunting. He was greatly respected by the faculty and his students at Ruston High School. He was a brilliant mathematician. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Doug Stewart

Mr Ferguson was one of my favorite teachers. Thank you for teaching me that 1 + 1 = 2. He was the reason I studied Math in college. RIP

Mr. Ferguson was one of the best teachers I ever had. I credit him with my ability to pass all math classes easily at Tech. He was a true educator whom I had a tremendous amount of respect for. Thank you, Mr. Ferguson.

I loved Mr. Ferguson and his math classes; he taught me all four years of high school ('78-'82). I sat with him in his room this past summer at Alpine in Ruston, and I was so pleased to spend 15 minutes talking with him. He was as bright-eyed and as chipper as ever with his full-bodied laugh. Condolences to all his friends and family.
