Jim (Jimmy as I knew him) and I met in the 8th grade and grew up together. We lived together for a while. We worked at the same shoe store for a while. We were in business together for a while. We were going into the ARMY together in 1968 and took a trip to DC as a last frolic before life got serious. We went to college together when we got out of the ARMY. Jim and I talked, but not as often I would have liked because life gets busy and time passes. We would talk about our family and work and dreams and struggles and memories. He really loved his family and was so proud of them. I haven't had many friends in life that were as close to me as Jim and I will miss him greatly. But I am thrilled that he loved and trusted Jesus because I know that I will get to see him again and we will catch up.

God give you rest my friend.

I am his son and my Dad was the most loving and caring father. He was very active and loved to walk and ride his 10-speed bike. He also loved the beach and would take us there often as a family. My favorite memory is of him taking me to see the first Space Shuttle Challenger launch in the early 80s. It got postponed due to the weather but we still had a good time!! As I got older he would call me and first thing he would say is 'hey Jeff it's your Dad"even though he knew I knew it was him. I'm gonna miss those calls and already miss him dearly!!

My bro ( as he always referred hisself to me) was the sweetest guy you could know! He and I were there for each other as kids. But he did love picking on his younger sister. Jimmy could talk to anybody! He loved meeting people and loved to laugh! I can hear Jimmy laughing right now. Oh how we all miss him. But now he is out of all that pain and suffering. He is now laughing with God !

Sweet , unselfish, loveable, funny, bro....I will always miss you!

Will miss my brother Jimmy very much and will remember the fun times we had as children in the Washington DC area. Just wish life had of been easier and we hadn't been separated at such a young age. The military caught up with both of us in the late sixties. He went off to Vietnam and myself to Okinawa. He married after the war and I stayed single and served in Germany until 1977. May we meet up again in the here after- will miss you Jimmy. May God Hold You In His Hands.

My cousin, Jim, was one of the kindest and most generous people I have ever known. We grew up together in the Washington, DC area in the 1950s and 1960s. I was fortunate to see him in recent years when he came to visit. He was the same sweet, good natured soul from our childhood. My prayers and thoughts are with his family.
