I had the pleasure of meeting, and working with Jim while he was a volunteer for Lewis County Fire Dist. 12. I admired his knowledge since I was basically just starting my career as a firefighter when we met, as well as his dedication and friendship. I remember his stories from his time with Seattle Fire along with his suggestion on how to survive a career in the fire service. I wish that I could have remained in contact with Jim over the last couple of years. He cherished his wife Norma, as well as his daughter and grandson Dan. My thoughts and prayers go out to Norma and Dan the community has lost a wonderful firefighter, husband and grandfather. God Bless you Norma and Dan Jim will always be in my memories.
