The STREET family,
I AM SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. JIM WAS A GREAT GUY, I worked out wit Jim & wife for many years. Jim was a super guy we shared many friends.and often we would go down memory lane about those friends.
Jim always had a smile on his face when he greeted me at the club.
We often talked about his career in the Baltimore City Fire Department and my career in the Baltimore in the Baltimore County Police Departmet.
Jim was as proud of his service to Baltimore the City Fire Department as I was proud of my service to the Baltimore County Police Department.
Jim was a person that dont come along every day. I am sure that God will welcome Jim in to the house of the Lord. Rest my friend, I hope when my time comes we will meet again.
You may be gone, but you will not be forgetten.

I will always remember Jim being the first car in line at Harford Day School to pick up Jonathan. He was there everyday, never late and patiently waiting for his grandson. We enjoyed being on field trips together, especially watching Jon and Collin at Fort McHenry so they wouldn't fall into the dirty harbor. I will always be so grateful for the loving care that he, Nina and Deb bestowed upon my son, Collin. He will always have those most special memories of spending time with them at Deep Creek Lake. Jim was the mentor that most people would love to have. He showed so much love and dedication to his family and friends. We will all truly miss him. Rest in peace.
