Jim was a fine Christian man, a dedicated family man, and a talented architect. In 1964-1966 we were partners at Cole & Goodrum and neighbors on Jackwood Street in Meyerland, Houston. He was always professional, honest, productive and a proud Aggie.

Our condolences and prayers go out to his wife, Gail, and his family. R.I.P. Jim.
