  1. I always enjoyed playing golf with Jim at High Vista. He and I loved to share jokes with our warped sense of humor. His military stories were always interesting to me, and you knew he loved his country. He was fun to be around and will be missed.

  2. Pam, So sorry to learn of Jim’s passing. Although I had not seen him recently, I had talked to him by phone a couple of times recently but I had no idea that he was ill. You have my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Jim, I will miss your jokes and your goofy personality. I will treasure all the bank visits and talks we shared. You and Pam were a light to my family during a dark time and I am forever grateful to have had the pleasure of getting to meet you both.

  4. Pam, I just learned of this sad news. My heart goes out to you. Although I had not seen or talked to Jim in many years, I will always remember him as a sweet young man with a fabulous car and handsome smile. My condolences to you and his girls.
