We are honored to share wonderful memories of a kind man! “Walk happy” So
many light-hearted quotes over the years! And every golf quote or tip that would roll off his tongue!
A poem to share just at the right moment!
We met as he asked “Does anyone take someone home on a ventilator?” Our 5200 team at RGH worked with Jim to teach him and arrange all the equipment and services to have Marilyn discharge home on the ventilator support – 24/7! For the next 2 years she enjoyed living at home and it was a privilege to support Jim’s creativity to normalize their lives. Hard work and a labor of love.
He was eloquent at URMC as he was guest presenter with Dr Swinburne- telling the caregiver story.
Our years of friendship were a treasure! Milestones shared and smiles of humor. Grieving with losses and the challenges of a failing heart.
May you be at peace and no doubt, behind a steering wheel in heaven with dear loved ones at your side!
A gift of treasured friendship! Bob and Margaret Ecklund

My favorite memory of Uncle Jim is spending time at the pool at his house in Greece. He threw a great party! And he kept ice cream sandwiches in the garage fridge for us kids. He was eternally optimistic and would say “Go forth with confidence, Hon” whenever we parted. He always left people with a happy thought. He was Dad’s best friend and a ray of sunshine to everyone he met. I’m sure he had a huge warm welcome in heaven with all his loved ones. We will miss him so very much. Sending Sue and all the grandkids and family so much love.
