I remember as a boy spending time with Uncle Jim and Aunt Hazel at there home, cabin and even camping. I don't have just one memory but many wonderful memories of uncle Jim while growing up. I sure will miss him.

I met Jim through his wife Hazel. There are people in this world who are so special that they make others feel comfortable on first meeting them. Jim was that person. We became friends right off the bat. To heck with a hand shake, he insisted on a hug. He knew we liked venison and made sure we got some every year until we moved too far away. When Hazel passed away he would call me about once a year to tell me how he was doing. I sure will miss hearing about his love of dancing. RIP Jim, I Was truly blessed thatYou and Hazel were a part of my life.

Jim was a good friend of mine. He helped another friend of ours who had some health problems, driving him back and forth to Dances. He would ask all the women to dance. no discrimation at all. So sorry for his loss.
