Jim was a wonderful man that I was married to for 55 years. From the time we dated at the University of Georgia until his passing he was the love of my life. We raised a son together and shared many hardships, challenges and triumphs.

He was my constant companion and champion. He had a heart of gold and a winning smile. I will always love Jim forever. I miss him very much.

I always looked forward to seeing Jim. He was always positive and uplifting. While he was in the service in Germany he sent me an expensive baseball glove as a gift. I never forgot that. ....He was quite an athlete at Gainesville HS, as Captain of the football team in 1957. He received a football scholarship to the University of GA....I sorely wished that we could have seen more of him in the later years.

JIM

A special man and grandfather: kindness, patience along with Jim's warm heart will be missed by his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren.

May his kind spirit always be remembered and the eternal journey of his next life be cradled in the light of Christ's Love......

Uncle Jim was only 8 years old when I was born. I always loved and enjoyed his fun loving gentle spirit. So many good memories of Chicopee Village and the farm, riding Jim's horse. He saved all his 'Blue Horse' coupons for me so I could get a gym bag! Sure wish I could have had one more visit with him before he had to go. I know he is having a wonderful celebration in Heaven, reuniting with Nanny and Pop, with my parents and the many friends he had during his life.

The kindest smile that always warmed my heart even in the hardest of times,
a gentle soul that will be missed so dearly. Someone who put everyone before himself. I love you forever grandad.
