I was just informed of Jimmy's passing, and am saddened at this news. To the family, I worked with Jimmy at Allstate, and was always captivated by Jimmy's ability to work a room and be in control of a situation. He always did right by others and looked for a win-win outcome. His sense of humor and uniqueness was as individual as a fingerprint. His spirit lives on as he will be missed.

Jimmy was one of my dearest and long standing friends from Beatlefest. I met him in the 80s when both Jamie and Michelle were little. He always brightened my day - funny is an understatement. My best to Jamie, Michelle and Pat. Jimmy will be surely missed. Anytime I think of him, I smile - a true friend. All the best - rest in peace my friend. Bob Adamonis, Seattle

I never had the opportunity to meet or speak to Jim which I regret. We shared a passion for the Beatles which I'm sure would have led to our paths crossing at some point. My sincerest condolences go out to Jim's family and friends.

Our family met Jim in 2011 at the Fest for Beatles Fans, and saw him last at the most recent Fest two weeks ago. He was a friendly, funny, sweet man with great ideas and enthusiasm. He will be greatly missed by all the fans who knew him. Sincere Condolences to his entire family.

I only met Jim 12 months ago, but felt like we had known each other all our lives. He was like a brother to me, and he has left a huge hole in my life. We had planned a huge Beatles project together, and I will make his dream a reality. Our hearts go out to those he loved and cherished. We will miss him so much. Dave, Alix, Philippa, Lauren and Ashleigh

I knew Jimmy in high school. We had some really serious discussions about religion back then. We met up again at our 40th reunion and had a good laugh about how we turned out. I was sorry to hear the news that he is gone too soon. My first thought after hearing was that now he knows which one of us was right all those years ago. I'll remember him with fondness.

Pat, I am so sorry. Words don't touch it. This is so unfair. I am here for you. Monica

Rest will Jim. It was a true pleasure to meet you and Pat in Secaucus at the fest. You were the person I ever met that wore a
cowboy hat, so that will be long
remembered. We had some good chat and laughs at fest at Daves
table. I'm glad I made the trip and can glady say, "i knew that guy".

I am so sad to hear of Jimmy's passing. He and I were in homeroom together for six hears in high school, and it was so good to see him at our last reunion. He sat with me and my husband, who also knew him. I can only say he will be greatly missed. May God grant you comfort and peace during this sorrowful time.

Jim you will be greatly missed. While I have only known you for year or so, I am going to miss your presence. You were always open, friendly, welcoming, and kind to me and my friend Tony in your home and on other occasions. I will miss your infectious good humor and entertaining demeanor. I am glad to have known you. I thank you for giving me a kind, caring, and compassionate friend and soon to be sister-in-law. (Michelle). I look forward to having her in my family. My deepest heartfelt sympathy goes to your soul mate and fiancé Pat (who has the same infectious humor and passions as you), Michelle & my brother Barry, and your family and friends. Rest in Peace (Requiescat in pace).

Jim came into our lives and took us in like a part of his "extended" family. He was a kind-hearted and generous person. He became an important part of our lives. I will reflect on things that we talked about and shared for the rest of my life. Our love is with him. He will be greatly missed. Derek and Beth, Emma and Evelynn Leavitt.

My husband Andrew and I were introduced to Jim by David Bedford at The Beatles Fest just two weeks ago. He was straight-forward, genuine, fun, and funny and I just had to smile as we parted ways. He was a delightful man and although I knew him but for a very brief moment in time...he left his heart-print on my soul. God Bless him and may those he left behind find comfort.
