Dear Marilee and Family,
May you find comfort and peace at this time. You have shared with us that Jim was a talented man, a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Jim proudly served his country well. These are all things that a lifetime asks of a good man. Mavis Kuhn and Vani Maddalli

I'm saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I know that the last few years had been a struggle for him and all of his family.
Jim was always a good brother in law to me and was always kind and respectful to Babe and Mary and my family as well. Jim never had to be the center of attention and was always rather quiet and kept to himself at family gatherings but yet you knew he was there. I never really heard Jim speak ill of anyone.
As quiet as he was and as far away as we lived, I can genuinely say I will miss him as we all will.
Sorry for your loss.

Rest in Peace Jim.

Jim was always kind and smiling. I didn’t know about all the medals you receive until recently for fighting for our Country. Thank you for your service. You will be greatly missed in this big loving family.

I am truly sorry for this unfortunate loss .. Jim ( Dad ) was a strong admirable and kind soul. This has saddened me deeply as I have always had a soft spot for dad. I’m so sorry Jimmy, Jeff, Jess, and Marilee.. I am not one to say goodbye. So I’ll be seeing you Jim ❤️ We can be sure we definitely have an angel on our side now.

I remember the first time I saw Jim. He came by our house to meet the girl who had wrote to him while serving our country. I thought to myself what a proud looking man. What a polite person he was. He was very respectful to her and her family. From that day forward they both seemed to understand and respect each other.

Jim I will miss you around us. You may have never talked too much but your silence and laughter will be missed. I thank you for giving my sister a wonderful life. You were always kind to me. Concerned about me. And treated me with love and respect . I am proud to call you my Brother. May you rest now .

Love, Pam

After knowing you and your family for almost 25 years, there are to many memories to write just one. You were like a dad to me after I lost mine. You taught me lessons I’ll never forget and stories that made my jaw drop open. You were a great man and a better friend. You fought long and hard but now your fight is over and you can rest.

Until we meet again.... Brian

The sacrifice you made for all of our country was immense! The years of military service molded you into the quiet man you were. You are no longer looking AT that MEMORIAL WALL, you are inside looking out. The love for your wife could be seen. Your family will miss you. We will miss hearing that "for sure..for sure"!
With respect.......
