We were so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was a good neighbor and helped us with buying one of our cars. He will be greatly missed by all. Sympathy to his kids and siblings.

Jim and Chris were great neighbors and friends for over 25 years. Jim helped me many times with my car problems and gave me his car so I could drive out of town to my brother's funeral. He helped me lease my first new car when I had no credit, no husband and five kids to feed. He believed in me and help me establish credit. It was always a fun time being neighbors with the Coopets, even if they did call the cops. (that's another story) Mark,Rachael,Jake(the flake) and Cassie(who is Cassandra) You have to keep remembering that your dad is with your mom, and that's a good place for him to be. Can't you just hear your mom...."Coopet, where the hell have you been?"
Love you all Jan Andersen McMillan

The Coopets were a family of seven sons, ours a family of six sons. The only common name among we thirteen boys is Guy. Funny that. Jimmy was a childhood friend and I've a couple of pics to prove it. Look forward to sharing them with his children and siblings this Friday. So sorry for our loss.
