My heartfelt condolences go out to Jim's friends, family and all those affected by his loss.
I got to know Jim as his business neighbor on Main Street. I owned two different restaurants for about 15 years next to Jim's Barber shop. I have also been a tenant of Jim and his lovely wife for over 10 years...
I always found Jim to be a sweet and honest man with a kind heart! I'm very saddened by his passing and I will miss him very much.
