My Uncle Jim with his brother Earle Liss and my mom, his sister Pauline Van Peeren. He was a cool Uncle and we enjoyed his yearly visits to Michigan and Florida! He will be missed!

Jim was my dad's best friend since the 70's and made many visits to my parents home. He and my dad took several trips together though the years. I remember he was always working on a project for his home and there wasn't anything he couldn't make or repair.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
