Jim “Karny” Karnstedt passed away peacefully, surrounded by loving friends and family July 10 at the age of 63 following a sudden illness. He was a healer and an educator, sharing his wealth of information through lectures, video and his business, Ion & Light. Jim touched many lives with his generosity and his enchanting spirit. He was loved by all who knew him.
