I was only fortunate to have met Jim once, that was at Karen and Dwayne`s wedding. I never really knew him but I do know and love his wonderful daughter Karen and his beautiful grandchildren Nicole and Evan.
Being the father of Karen I know he must have been a wonderful man and father. Karen is an exceptional young lady who would make any father more than proud.
God Bless all of you for your loss, please know I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Jim was absolutely the "fix-it" man with a very analytical mind. I will miss all the talks we had about how to repair things during visits. He had a great sense of dry humor and often made me laugh. I'll miss that smile. I know this is an incredibly difficult time for everyone and it's been a tough week. Jim will be missed by all.
