Rest in peace old friend. I worked with Jim when he was just a Fireman on the 11 pm east lead on the Rock Island , to the Missouri Pacific, to the Union Pacific. He was always so smooth, level headed, never too high or too low. What a great guy and pleasure to know and work with.

I had the pleasure of working with Jim after the Rock Island shut down, and he came over to the Union Pacific. He was the best, sadness was much felt to read of his passing.
