Jim was My Pastor First at Calvary Baptist Church in Streetsboro
I Accepted God Through His Ministry! We Were a Poor Church and Pastor Never Received a Paycheck His Payment Was The Ministry!
Later in Life I worked for Jim after He Retired from the Ministry as a Laborer in Davis and Sons Heating and Cooling Where I Saw His
Ministry Continue Through His Business Always Passing on His Faith Through His Practices! I Enjoyed His Music as He Later Became a Music Minister at Several Churches and Was Very Proud To Be at Highway Tabernacle Church When His Step Daughter Shaundra Accepted Christ!

Jim was originally just a business that I used over 30 years ago, but soon after he became a good friend that I enjoyed spending time with. His soft spoken, friendly caring demeanor will not be forgotten. Rest In Peace my friend.

Sad to hear about his passing, but it is much better knowing that he is now with the Lord that he has loved and served throughout his life. The Choice is still one of my favorite memories from my time knowing him at Louisville First Assembly of God. It filled me with such joy being a part of a play that reached out to our community, and it would not have been the same if Jim was not there to guide the entire process. I will never forget the impact that he has made on our church and the community!

We were both 16 when we met. I will never forget the way you played guitar and always were ahead of me with the new beatles song. After we both got home from the service we got together again with your brother Bill, this time you got me on drums. It was also great working with you in the late 90's. Oh and by the way, l will finish the song you and I started to write. Love ya always, Bobby Sepulveda
