Jim,the cool older brother, I've been friends with Norman for 40 years. The age gap didn't matter he just saw us as friends. Very ,very good memories. I feel incredibly lucky to have spent time with the two brothers together. I remember a man with a caring soul.

I will always and very fondly remember Jim as my husband's older brother, the cool dude with a ready smile, and a red-tailed hawk tattoo, Norm's best man at our wedding. I remember the many times we all went hiking in Newark Watershed or swimming at "Our Lady" in the heat of summer. Jim always had pet snakes, lots of snakes... I had never held a snake before... thanks Jim for that new experience. In addition to snakes, Jim had geckos for a while. He made very nice wood enclosures for the snakes and geckos.... they had lots of room to crawl and slither around, with tree branches to hang on.
Jim also loved to read and was very knowledgeable on many subjects.
I remember how happy Jim was when he met Lorraine, especially, of course, on their wedding day... and the many happy holiday dinners and birthdays we all spent together. Jim, you will be missed... wish we had more happy times and memories with you.
With Love, Sherri
