Bob Contri said it all about Jim except the generous sharing of produce from his garden (particularly egg plant).

Like many people I called Jim (Pizzo). I played golf with Pizzo at Geneva Hills Golf Course for many, many years. Pizzo worked at Hercules with my father-in-law, Richard Nickels. Pizza was a good friend to him. Pizza loved to play golf. In his early years when he hit his approach shot to the green, he would yell out, "Its in the hole". We knew when Pizzo was playing well. One day I was playing golf with him and he wasn't hitting the ball solid. I told him to hit the new irons I just bought. They were Calloway El Diablos. He hit the ball with my 6 iron next to the hole. When we made the turn at the clubhouse pizza went inside and ordered him a set. Last year in July and September Pizzo wanted to play early (8:00 am) when it was cooler. I'm so glad I played early with him. Oh yea, when I would first see him at the golf course he would greet me by saying, "Hello you big phoney". I really loved that guy and I'm going to miss him.
