I met Jim in 1961. His brother John Sr. and I were going to a drive-in theater we stopped by a sister's house and picked Dean and Jim up to go with us. That is where we had our first pizza, we had heard about it but we had never eaten Pizza until that night. It was delicious. Jim was a very polite well-mannered young man, a great friend and a wonderful brother-in-law and I know that he loved his family. I'm sorry for the loss of Jim, may God's promise of eternal life be a comfort to you and the loss of your dear loved one. Mary Ann you and your family are in my prayers I pray for comfort and strength during this difficult time. Love you all Hazel

Jim will be missed by all who knew him. Jim was a special. kind, caring, loving man and wonderful friend. He was always there to help anyone with anything. I don’t think Jim knew the word no when asked for assistance and Jim knew the answers to everything I ever asked him for help with after my husband died in 2012.
He was devoted to Mary and his family.
Jim was one of a kind. Rest In Peace my friend.
