I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. If I had to use one word to describe Jim it would it would be KINDNESS. He exhibited that whenever I was with him. All who knew him will miss him.

Paulette and family,

So sorry for the loss of your husband and father. I have only really know him the last few years but you could tell from the beginning how much he loved you all. He was very kind and enjoyed sitting and talking with him. He never had anything bad to say but anyone and was very kind hearted.

I will miss him and always be here for Paulette my dear friend.

Love Tony and Betty

Jimmy was truly one of a kind...I used to call him "Mr. Chamber of Commerce". He had countless friends from virtually all over North America. Annual visitors would come to the Tides and ask "where is Jimmy"? Jimmy could work a room like no one else and at the end of the day he was surrounded by smiling friends, new and old. His generosity and goodwill was and will be unmatched.
Of one thing I am sure...his many friends will never let him be forgotten.
Peace, my brother.
