I never got to know Uncle Jim as well as I wish I could’ve. I always knew him as a great guy but we lived far from Lancaster so we didn’t get to see him that often. I do remember he was there for me for most of my younger childhood. I wish we could’ve talked more because going to the Funeral made me realize that we had a lot in common. I can’t wait until the day when we can meet again. Rest In Peace Uncle Jim.

So very sorry to hear of Cousin Jim's passing. He was a very good man with a wonderful sense of humor. We all had so much fun growing up together on the farm in Pickerington.

My sympathies are with you all. I am sorry for your loss.

I have great memories of Jim from years ago at Rickenbacker! I worked for him in Munitions Maintenance, and he was a wonderful, laid back boss. I was the first woman working out at the bomb dump, and he expected me to do what all the guys did. I appreciated that he wasn't crude around me; he was like a father figure. My prayers are with his family and all those who loved him.

I worked at DSCC with Jim for several years. He was always kind, fun, and a model employee. It was a pleasure to be on the same team with him. I remember he loved to do woodworking. Jim also worked at Rickenbacker ANGB with my husband. We send our condolences from our home in Tucson, Arizona.

Jim had my dad's sense of humor and logical way of looking at life. I have been blessed to have him in my life and will miss him tremendously. I took this picture in April, 2018 when I was visiting Ohio. He was a great cousin who knew how to lay block and mix cement with my dad. May he rest in peace.

Uncle Jim was always picking on me and I loved him so much. I will miss all of the silly posts on Facebook. I’m glad I got to visit last year.

I'll always have such great memories and fun times when we all worked together at foundation dinners. The great times we all had with you at our monthly dinners. Always had a funny come back and always smiling. Your heart was as big as your personality. You will be missed. Rest in the arms of Jesus.
