Mr. King was a good man whom I greatly respected. He was great hunter who went on real challenging hunts for big game. I started playing hockey with Jerry over 40 years ago, and can remember when Mr. King used to give several kids on the team rides to practices and games when their parents were could not take them for whatever reasons. I thank him for kindnesses such as this, and I and my family will miss him greatly.

We had the pleasure of knowing Jim through our daughter Heather. We loved stories of the adventures he had hunting and always looked forward to hearing about the latest conquest. We will both miss him at family gatherings. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends.
