I was shocked to hear of Jimmy's passing. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I believe we met once during one of my trips back home from Seattle. Jimmy and I were basically neighbors while growing up near Prospect Presbyterian Church. He lived beside the church and I lived across from it. We had some fun times together. Jimmy is the only high school classmate that I have kept in consistent touch with. I always appreciated that he reached out to me. He tried hard to get me interested in genealogy via Ancestry.com. Knowing my military career, he was always sharing interesting stories of aviation history and events.
