Jim was my first friend on the block. He welcomed me with love and kindness and later the same to our children. He was the kind of man who would drop everything to help someone. Jim looked out for us. There was never a un identified vehicle on his watch . The quality I admired most was his love for his own wife, children and grandchildren. RIP Jim. You will be missed.

Jim was amongst the last of the rugged individualists.  One of my favorite people I have ever known.

 

Love this man and the laughs he brought everyone that knew him.  Never knew anyone that loved his family as much as he did and tried to provide a good life for them all.  I will miss my cousin and hope that you find peace and painfree as comforting as your presence here with us was.  Love ya "Unk"
