We were classmates of MCHS Class of 66.
I have a lot of memories of various sports we played in Jr. High and High School.
I am the class of 66 Historian. We have a list of all Deceased Classmates and cause of death. Jim will be on the list we send out every year on the anniversary of our graduation.

It's my prayer that Jim didn't suffer.

Thoughts and prayers for your family.

Dear Barb,
I was saddened to hear of Jim's passing. Jimmy was one of the first people I met when our family moved to Madison in 1962. We became close friends immediately and remained close through our High School years. Then, when Jim went into the service we kind of lost touch. I'll always remember our late night Wilson Avenue adventures, our basketball games and our trips to Louisville to see you and Linda. I know that you were the light of his life. God Bless you. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family.
