Jim and his nephew Bobbie and I grew up together in Lawn dale California. When I moved to Visalia Ca Jim moved with me. We both went to Mount Whitney High School. After I got out of the Air force Jim and I worked together in the floor covering business
Jim was like a family brother to me. I knew Jim's family in LA Calif.
I will miss Jim we had a lot of memories together
