At a time when authenticity is much discussed but not much seen, Jim Lackey stands out. He was the most genuine person you could ever meet.
Jim did not stand on ceremony and had no time for pretensions. If you tried to put on airs, he would bring you down to earth with a bang. I'll always think of him as "No-bullsh*t Jim".
Jim loved and was very protective of his children and grandchildren. I remember going to Ruby Tuesday's with Jim, Margie, Jean and Todd and a young Campbell. Campbell wanted to take her shoes off. Jim encouraged her. Jean steamed. Then Jim ordered the special mega-calorie desert for Campbell. Jean steamed some more. Campbell was very happy. Jim was happy, thanking the wait staff for "being kind to my granddaughter".
Jim will be so missed in the family and by all who knew him. Goodbye to a unique and much-loved individual. We love and miss you and will try to keep telling-it-like-it-is in your honor.
