A gracious and respectable person whose work has done so much to bring so much joy to many of us in these troubled times hard to deal with (2 Tim 3:1). Perhaps more will continue to have positive experiences from a wonderful work that this giving person has shared resulting in a positive impact and contribution to life and its anxieties.

I met Jim when I got hired at STA in August 1984. He was one of several drivers who trained me to drive the Paratransit van. A real great guy that I had the pleasure of working with until he retired. God Bless.

One of the best friends I have ever had. He loved God, Country and his Family, truly a good man. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Rest in Peace my Friend, Rest in Peace, we will all miss you.
