My condolences to Jim's family. I was a neighbor of Jim and his parents many years ago. Was surprised to see that Don had passed in 2018. A good family.

So sorry to hear passing of Jim. He was a classmate at PHS. Recalling Jim as always such a nice friendly gent. Hadn't seen him in decades, but he was in my thoughts many times, as I wondered where his adventures had taken him after graduating in 65.
May your happy find memories ease the pain of your loss. May Jim rest peacefully in the arms of the Lord.
