You are missed by so many people Dad..........take care, and remember to save a seat for me in Heaven. Diane
My deepest sympathy to the entire Ames family. Growing up with Duke & Brad I got to know Jim and he was truly a good man. He had a positive impact on so many of use and will be missed by all. May you all take some comfort knowing he touched so many lives.
When Jim married Jean he instantly became another grandparent for our kids. He was always a great guy to be around and will be missed. Love you Jim. Rest In Peace.
One of my favorite Jim Ames stories dates back to the sixties when he worked for the Rockledge Police Department. Jim caught a hot rodder (NOT ME) spinning his tires in the street and laying long streaks of burned rubber. Rather than arrest the kid, and give him a police record, Jim made the kid remove the tire marks from the asphalt with a bucket of soap and a scrub bush. Jim's thoughtful, kind, and common sense approach to situations made him not only well liked, but respected. He was a good friend to so many, and would give almost anyone the shirt of his back. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ames family in sympathy.
What a nice man Mr Ames always was. Always ready to help do something around the little leauge fields.I was also there there one night when he and Duke were playing pool at Normans,someone was giving Duke the business,and Mr.Ames turned that pool cue around and was ready to show that guy the busisness end of it.Just always such a nice,gentle soul.He will be missed.My condoleces to the family.
