This must be the 10th time I've typed this, and will probably delete it again. I'm struggling to put to words how much Jim means to me. When I first met him I was so scared to meet my (at the time) girlfriend's dad and wanted to make a great impression, but I didn't need to try, he welcomed me to the family with open arms and became my dad too. Jim is a wonderful father to Katy and myself and wonderful grandfather to Leah. I will deeply miss him. My love, thoughts, prayers, and whatever he needs are with Russ, spending Jim's last days in the hospital not only showed me how much he truly loved Jim, but showed me what it truly means to be a loving and caring husband in difficult times like this. I will strive to live by this example for Katy.

I had the pleasure of working with Jim as a team member of Dongan Electric / Pioneer Transformer Co. What a gentleman! Our friendship continued after my retirement and I will truly miss our conversations. Jim's family were jewels in his crown with the addition of Leah, he was over the top. What a blessing he was to all who knew him and what an empty place without him. Praying for the comfort only God can provide to all as we move forward without Jim.

I've seen Jim a few times when he has came to Pioneer Transformer. Every time that I would see him, almost always had a bright smile. Heaven sure gained another special Angel. Prayers for the guidance to help get through this difficult time. Jim you will forever be missed by the transformer team.
