  1. Yeah, you may have been a cranky curmudgeon, but you had a heart of gold. We all know that. I know Blackjack was part of your welcoming party. I’m sad I won’t ever see you at Paul & Elaine’s table again Jules. Farewell, until we met again …

  2. Jules. It’s hard to believe. Hope you and Bowman are kicking back and laughing at all of us down here. Rip ole man till we meet again.

  3. Jules was one of my favorite people. When I was breaking into the music business in the mid 70’s and I would play at The Brass Tap, I would hope Jules would be there. Sometimes when I was on the road, writing a song, I would think; “I wonder what Jules would think of this?” I saw him about 7 years ago. He was still Jules and I still listened. My condolences to his family and friends.

  4. I just found out about Jules. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jules was our company and my personal electrician for many years. I am sure he will be missed. I work for L.B. Jackson & Co., LLC.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear of Jules passing.
    I just found out yesterday and I regret having missed the memorial service. My deepest condolences to all the family, and particularly to Jules’ son, David.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear just yesterday of Jules’ passing. I regret missing the celebration of his life. My deepest condolences to his family, and particularly to his son, David.

  7. So sorry this is so late..just found out Wednesday, Feb. 5. We will miss you, Jules. We loved your grumpy ways, your sense of humor, but most of all, your heart. Besides being an Elks Lodge brother and our electrician, you were a great friend. Will miss pontificating on our patio with you and a cold drink after a job well done. RIP, love you, friend and brother Elk.

    Ken and Beverly Ramsey
