Our thoughts and prayers go out to Steve and Celia as we have just learned of Jim's passing. I am quite sure he and Liz are reunited above! We have many memories of both of them as we lived next door to each other for years. He will be sadly missed.

I was a friend of Jim at Ann Arbor High and at the University of Michigan. I'm sorry that I missed my opportunity to speak with him at the AAHS 50th year reunion last summer.

Did Jim leave any written memoirs, or did he record interviews about his life? I sure hope so -- such artifacts would have great value in documenting our local history. He always seemed to know what was really going on in town, and at the University -- he had revelations about things that were not covered in the public media.

Jim was a very unique person. Always interesting and had his own way of seeing the world. I remember having tea with Liz at the foss street house and I said " Jim, would you like to join us?" He said, " No, I don't want any tea. I just want to sit over here and listen to you gals talk" . He had a special way about him and it always felt like he was going to come up with the greatest idea you had ever heard any minute now !!! The world would be a better place with more people like Jim. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I have only known Jim for the last 8 years, but it feels like I have known him forever. We shared so many experiences in media work together but in different cities. He was always a quiet listening ear to anything I had to share and I thank him for that and I thank him for all the little electronic gadgets he shared with me. I will miss the times we shared stories and made projects together, whether they be coat hanger DTV antennas or light bulb/LED extravaganzas. He, like Liz, has left us too soon.

I will miss your intellectual conversations. You will truly be missed. My prayers to the family.

Much sadness in his passing. Among the more memorable episodes was an outdoor Christmass light project when they lived on Foss St.. A Rube Goldberg collection of dozens of relays and hundreds of lights draped from the top of several 20 foot tall evergreens. And as well, the art of conversation will suffer greatly from his absence.

Although I only knew James, as he was known at age 7, I always looked union to him. His mother was my First Grade teacher and we studied piano with the same teacher, Elizabeth Rohns. I always tried to play as well as he did, but he had a year of lessons more than I did! RIP.

My Heart is broken and I have no words. Jim was an incedible person, and will be terribly missed.

I first got to know Jim in about 1977, as a fellow IATSE Local 395 member, and as the husband of Liz Moray, a good friend of mine with whom I worked as a film projectionist. The first impression that Jim made on me has stuck all these years: a person of high intellect, strong views, unique sense of humor and widely varying interests. Although we have had only sporadic conversations since I moved to Austin, Texas in 1991 with my husband, I still will miss him. It was a pleasure simply to know that he was on the planet, and to have that occassional, utterly entertaining conversation. To Celia and Steve, I had great respect and affection for your father, and wish to extend my condolences.

We will never forget Jim's unique wit, intellect and love of his family. Love and hugs to Steve and Celia and all of his extended family. I will miss not sharing all of the wonderful memories of him from his many friends and family this weekend at his memorial service. With thoughts of peace, and reuniting with Liz, Peter, mom and dad on the next plane brings me such joy!

We will miss Jim who bought his wit, uniqueness and love of family to all of us. He will be remembered and remain in our hearts forever. Love and hugs to Steve and Celia and all of our extended family. Margaret

He fought, and he did it his way. He touched many lives.

I was saddened to hear of Jim's passing on Saturday, But I can only imagine the conversations & laughs him, Liz and Lois are having up there! They are all in very good company, and I hope that helps ease some of the pain. His life and legacy will live on through his Children and Grandchildren. Sending my love & condolence to the family!
"Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow...
I am the diamond glints on snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling flight...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry—
I am not there... I did not die..."
