Jim, a very very close friend and neighbor.... Moving from California to little old Hammond in 95', he taught me how to rough it in the thick of the rain, sleet, and snow in the upstate of the sticks New York. Always knew when the fish were bitting in The Creek or in Jim's words "The Crick". He always had something to yell out at you across the way (all joking of course). A great hearted man that would go out of his way to help anyone in anyway. R.I.P. Jim, you will always be in our hearts and missed......
