Jim was my brother in law. More so he was my friend. We shared a very special relationship. He was a man I respected and admired. We made some memories Bonnie nor I can speak of without breaking up laughing. The good kind that don't happen every day but you never forget. Once I asked Jim " what came first, the chicken or the egg". He looked at me with a matter of fact kind of look and said "I don't know but it rode in on a Harley"! That was Jim everything ended with a Harley.
I always told Jim what I loved most about him was the way he loved my sister. The love they shared was rare and strong.
Jim got into working with leather and was amazing at it. For my birthday a few years ago he made me a beautiful purse unlike any he had made before. I was so touched he made it for me! It has been and will forever be one of my most cherished possessions.
Jim was a rare breed of man. I will miss so much about him. Having known him in my life I will always be grateful for.
To his loving Wife and children I give my sincere condolences.
You are his legacy. Through you he lives on.
Rest in peace Jim. One day we will meet again. Maybe even on a Harley! ( I couldn't resist.)

Jim's Sister

I moved next to Jim and Bonnie back in 2012. I could not have asked for better neighbors. Jim and I worked in the same industry and for the same people at different times. Jim's sense of humor, discussing our experiences at work was enjoyable and I will never forget it. Rest in peace my friend. Sincerely - Fred
