I was so sad to hear about the passing of my cousin Jim. I did not know him well as we never lived near each other, but I have very fond memories of him and the family when they came to visit my parents in Kansas City. My Dad, Don loved his nephews and niece. Thank you for including a picture of Dad, Jim and Larry that I have never seen. Also, the picture of the four siblings dressed in black and white was taken at my Dad’s funeral. I was so happy you all were there to honor him. I am very sorry I am not there today to honor Jim and support you all. My flight got into KC from Rome last night at 10:30pm which was 3:30 am Rome time. If I had one more day I would have been on a plane to TX. As we visited the churches throughout Italy I said many prayers for Jim and for strength for the family. I lit a candle for Jim in Assisi. Please know I am with you in my heart today. Jim was a good, kind, loving man and will be missed . May God Bless you all. Rest In Peace cousin.

You passed to soon.. This older brother was to proceed you. Of coarse I remember our young years, when we played tackle football in our dirt back yard just the two of us. Later when you would open the screen for me on the second floor window because dad locked the doors. So I would pull my car up to the coal shed jump on the hood climb up on the roof and then thru the screen you had opened for me.
I believe my best and fondest memories are when we lived in Dallas together. With both our families we interacted, played together, swam to together, road motorcycles, when you road over me on the motorcycle. Went to ball games together, and out to eat. You introduced us to Poncho's, and Zider Zee where we ate to much and drank to much.
All good times!!
I have prayed for your soul brother. I'm sure you are in a better place now waiting for us to reunite.
I have always loved you. Larry

Dearest friends,

Growing up with Debbie we had so many wonderful times together with Jim providing concert tickets, music and fun. My childhood was immensely enriched due of Jim. I have some of my fondest memories because of Jim...I loved him deeply.

My prayers are for you all during this time and in the future as you remember the precious gift of Jim.

God Bless you all....

Every day of my life for the past 15 years I can’t remember a day without spending time with Jim. I will miss all the times spent with him. The lunches, laughs and the special moments shared. A great person who i know has touch each and every person he came in contact with . Jim had this personality that glows and cared deeply for others. Always seeing the greatness in everyone. I will truly miss him. It was a wonderful blessing to be able to spend each day with him. I'm sure that I can speak for all who has been around him with love.

Sincere Sympathies

Jim was a co-worker that I got to spend some time with a few years ago when I came to the Texas office. Jim was very sweet and I could tell right away that he was loved by everyone he worked with. He will truly be missed. It was a wonderful blessing to be able to meet this special person and I hope to see him again when we meet in Heaven.

Patty and Family,

I want to express my most sincere sympathies to you all at this difficult time. Jim was a highly valuable and respected member of our Conduent family and the effects of his passing are deeply felt by his fellow colleagues.

Jim was a wonderful employee who understood the meaning of the word "team." He was always more focused on the good of the company and the department than on his own benefit. He made many great contributions to the company and helped it move forward in numerous ways. His work here will not soon be forgotten. Jim was a remarkable man and everyone at Conduent is better for having known him. For those of us that had the privilege of calling him "friend" outside of work, we were humbled by his kindness and compassion to everyone around him. His positive attitude, witty charm, vivacious smile, and zest for life were infectious. You couldn't help but be happy when you came in contact with him.

As you go through this difficult time, find joy in knowing that Jim loved his family with all his heart and took every opportunity to speak of you. You were his world, each and every one of you.

He will be greatly missed at Conduent, as we lost a part of us too. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. We will pray for peace and comfort in the days and weeks ahead
