There is never a good time.. but this came all too soon!
We were so close in our younger years. He was like an older brother to me because we were close in age.I remember the family camping trips, the bike rides all over Cherry Stone Camp ground. The time Jimmy Chad and I raced to the bridge and cut Chad off landing him into the swap with crabs all in it. Him crying historically as we laughed.
The good times we all had on our hunting trips in Western Maryland with Pop pop, Uncle Mel, and my Dad. One night Jimmy and I tried lighting a fire with wet wood, decided to add gas and lighter fluid and almost catching the entire woods on fire. Everyone coming out of the camper yelling at us.
I still laugh about the time Mom was taking us to Pop Pop and Mom Mom's and we passed Uncle Jimmy and Eric on the dirt bike with cops chasing them down My Carmel Rd. Mom said oh my...there goes Jim! Chad and I yelling in the back window go go go!
Jim was never one to sit still and always on the run yet would help anyone in need and give the shirt off his back. He loved his family. Always asked about everyone every chance he got.
I remember watching him jam out on the guitar as I sat on the amplifier weekend after weekend. Jim loved his music and could play a mean electric guitar. He owned and rocked the mullet hairstyle! Jim introduced me to rock and roll and when I hear certain songs it takes me right back.
He was never one to take the highway .. always took the rougher road
but always manged to somehow come out the other side with a positive attitude and a smile. He lived his life and partied like a rock star..didn't care what anyone else thought about it. His voice and laugh will be missed . Fly high Uncle Jim... until we meet again!
