Jimmy was one of my closest friends in the mid 1960’s to the 70’s. His family moved in across the street from us on Duxbury in the Westbury part of Houston, & both attended Westbury HS & University of Houston eventually... went to MANY
U of H basketball games, played home run derby at the local ball park, & shot baskets on our homemade backboard. Jimmy was a STRONG baseball player , an avid U of H basketball fan, & an extremely intelligent person. I knew this because as I was walking home laden down with books & papers, Jimmy was walking home with just a couple of pencils in his hand. At one point, he attempted teaching me chess,& was always 9 moves ahead for me in every match. God’s Blessings to all who knew & loved James Michael , & I deeply share your sorrows
