I knew Jim as a co-worker, boss, mentor and above all as a friend. We worked on the Fargo axle which is still in production today. He was a very talented engineer. He would put you on the right track very patiently even if you asked him a very stupid question. Sorry Jim, despite your many efforts, I did not take up on your offer to join the flying club. But I did learn to fly by the seat of my pants as an engineer.
My condolences to the family.
I worked with Jim at the IH Engineering center in Hinsdale. I always had the utmost respect for his technical knowledge and I appreciated his sense of humor. He will be missed and my condolences to his family.
I always enjoyed hearing of Jim's adventures while walking the various golf courses of Phoenix. He lived well, and really will be missed at PP1. My condolences to the family he adored, and spoke so highly of.
Jim will be missed as a great neighbor and friend.
I worked with Jim when the first TD25C's were released and started delivery overseas.
It was an honor to know him during my many years at IH.
You just enjoyed talking with him, be it for work or general conversation.
He was a top Chief engineer at IH and always had time to give you direction .
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
