Jim and I attended Planeview High School back in 1954-55, we met up again when my wife Rose and I started the senior league at Northrock Lanes 13 years ago. He was a great guy and we’re going to miss him. Our prayers are with the family.

We knew Jim from ACAP travel club. He always was a nice guy and was always pleasant. It was fun to stop at their table and visit at Livingston's Restaurant. We'll miss him too.
