I hadn't seen Jim since 1965 in high school. I have fond memories of him and considered him a good friend. Sorry.

Jimmy was such a kind, sweet man. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother. Just an all around awesome family man. We’re going to miss you, Jimmy!

Just an all around great man. He was always smiling and kind always. The last time I saw him, I know he was sick, but he hugged me and told me he was thinking about me. It is obvious how beloved he was. I know he will be missed. Love to his family.
