I was sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. My condolences to his family. I first met Jimmy during my time umpiring Little League in Bridgewater (1992-2008). He was the coordinator who assigned all my District 3 tournament games. He would call at any hour and say " can you go to....". The answer was yes, of course. Jimmy always had a great story to tell, and was always willing to help out wherever needed. I worked with him from 1999-2002 umpiring high school games with HUA, which I am still active with to this day. He was a great guy, a good friend, and will be missed.

I enjoyed working with Jimmy at Reynolds Metals Company, he was always so helpful and cooperative. I also remember how dedicated he was to his family and how much he looked forward to the Little League World Series each year. I send my heartfelt sympathy to his family, especially his daughter and that special granddaughter he talked about so much!

Jimmy will be missed by many. He was a strong supporter of Spotswood High School and our athletic program. I would often run into him after work as he would be waiting in his van for the gate to open for a sporting event. He was very proud of the school and the Trailblazers. Deepest sympathies to the Herring family.

Jimmy and Elsa lived across the hall from me and my daughter for many years. I always loved talking to him out on the steps while he was smoking. He was full of wisdom and proud of the little league and his granddaughter. I believe when his beloved Elsa passed he started moving slower. I saw him a bit ago he was the sam ol Jimmy but underlying was the missing of his sweet wife. Now they are together forever and we will miss them both. So sorry for the loss of a great man. 😥
