I remember Jimmy in the '40s in Rye as a tall, lanky, and lively kid who hardly ever sat still and always seemed to have something fun going on! So sorry to be reading his obituary.

Summer of 1952 Jimmy showed up at my 2 room apartment I shared with
Thelma another nurse/student.The apartment was adjacent to the Univ.
Minn. Hospital & campus. Jim was to find a “farm” job for the summer. He
Did find a job, “flipping” burgers! Our father told Jim he could come back East & do that. Jim obliged, taking Greyhound stopping off to visit various
classmates along the way. What evokes this memory is a small black & white
Photo of Jim recliningon the “shore” of Lake Calhoun after a swim in the fresh water lake. A very happy teenager!
I will send the photo by US mail.
