We were saddened to learn of Jim's passing. We have wonderful memories of him sitting at my mom's dinning room table writing up the order for a new car. He sold us our first 1967 Buick Special a month before we were married. He was an individual who lived life to the fullest, had a great sense of humor and served his country with honor. We were privileged to be his friend. Our prayers and deepest sympathy to all.
