Jim had that deep voice that you couldn't help but hear even in a crowed room, his laugh was just as noticeable. So many memories over the years. I was glad to know him and he will be missed.

A Great man, husband, and father. I met him in February, 1980 during a marriage ceremony for his daughter Tammy and my brother Bobby Joe. Bobbie loved the man he called "Dad!" He was always smiling, loveable, positive and treated everyone with respect. Everytime, I visit Fort Wayne and drove past the Drive-in, I smile thinking about him , his wife, family and my on personal memories! To those who loved and knew and him the best, his legacy will continue on. God be with each and everyone of you during this difficult time. I love you all!
