Though I didn't know you real well, I'm glad I friended you and your brothers on Facebook. I enjoyed meeting your family and enjoyed your singing. Your'e probably singing up in Heaven right now for everyone there, and got a recording contract! Anyway, you will be sorely missed! You are with your mom and dad again forever.

I was shocked hearing of Jimmy's passing. As kids we used to tag along with his brother Kenny and my sister when they went to hang out in the bowling alley parking lot or cruise the mean streets of Saybrook. Jimmy was always the clown and had a wonderful way about him that drew people to want to be around him.I send my most sincerest sympathies to Jimmy's family and friends. He will be missed.

He was a great brother in law.
And, a great person, he will be well missed.
He is up in heaven with his mom and dad, Pop and him are probably fishing or crabbing in the sea of dreams. Until we meet again.

Cousin Jim.
Diane and I only met you once. But because of your love for Christ and love for family, and wonderful personality, we felt as though we had known you for so long. Your sudden and tragic passing shook us to our core. God bless you and keep you. May His light shine upon you and give you rest. Sing your praises to His glory in Heaven!

Our Sincere Sympathy to Chuck, Fred, David, Ed, Ken and their families and to Jimmie's Family. I am sure he is surrounded by his Mom and Dad, and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he isn't doing a duet with "Clate" both of them Safe now in the hands of Our Lord.
Our prayers to you all,
Shirley and Butch

Jim, the day you asked me to make a picture of your brothers boat we became friends. The talks we had about politics history and passing jokes back and forth through messenger was a high light for me. You rest now and be free of the pain that you had. You will be missed and you will live on in everyones heart.

My brother Jim. You gave us so many memories too many to list them all. Like when we were in school and you would ask me when do you want to get out today lol and because you had pops signature down to a science we could get out any time we chose. And I love the bond we all have as brothers the bond is minus one but all the memories will hold us all together. Donna and I are so thankful you and Val made it to our home for a visit last summer we had so many laughs and talks . You will always be loved and missed every day and your memorial brick will be right below mom and dads at the cross at our church Rest In Peace and fly high with the angels my baby brother

Uncle Jim was the most amazing man! He would do anything for anyone. No matter the situation. And I remember when he was living with me and my mom for my graduation night we all sat on the porch and we were laughing and smiling and singing. He was a lovely man to be around! ❤️ Love you uncle jimmy
