It is with great sorrow & heartfelt sympathy to his family,

We were sorry to read of Jim's passing. We bought the model home in his North Springs subdivision in Dunwoody in 1967 and still live in it. He jumpstarted the little crossroads community of Dunwoody and the surrounding area into what it is today. Thank you Jim! A true gentleman -- they don't make many like him anymore. We'll miss you, but
your legacy lives on.

I was saddened to learn of Jim's passing. I've known Jim as a friend since the 60's when I was with U. S. Plywood and he and John, his brother, were setting a new trend in the home building business. Jim was a natural leader, a man of unquestionable integrity, a humble man who gave back to the community and a man of abiding and strong faith. He left his blesings with all who knew him along the way. My deepest sympathy to Linda and the family. You can take pride in his many accomplishments. God bless you Jim as you enter your new heavenly eternal home.
