Jimmy has been my brother-in-law for 41 years and I knew him a year before that. With that said I knew him since he was a little kid. I seen him grow up and go into the Navy then he got a good job and went to school until he got his Masters. I'm just saying that I was real prould of him. I had Dory tell him how I felt just so he knew. He will be missed by all. My heart goes out to Sharon his wonderful wife. Love you brother. Hank Riger

Sharon, it was a pleasure and honor to work with Jim and also call him a friend. His battle with cancer was truly inspirational. I'm glad you two got to check a few things off the bucket list this year. I hope it brings you some consolation that he is no longer suffering and now he is looking down on you adoringly.

Sharon, hold tight to memories for comfort, and lean on your friends and family for strength, Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel. It was a pleasure having Jim as a co-worker and friend.

We are so glad we met you two. We had some great times together. When Jim invited us to the Elks and we were told they were closing and had about a half of drink. Jim introduced us to the American Legion Post #69 and there were more good times,closing at 7:00, remember. Then Disney and Disney in the rain. We feel we lost a good friend and these are some of the many memories we will remember. Sharon you know we are always here for you, Love Judy & Ned

In the spring, 1972, I went through Washington DC on an 8th grade school trip with Jim and three of our other friends. It was a fun and innocent time of pre-adolescence. I remember he rubbed poison ivy leaves over his hands at one of the memorials. He was trying to be funny. We told the school nurse immediately and she went BESERK and made him go wash his hands. He was fine. Wonderful classmate who I am sure grew into a fine man. I am sorry for your loss. Be well.

Sharon, my deepest sympathy. I work in CT and Jim was my "partner in crime" at the base. I saw him last June, but we always kept in touch. He was so excited for the trips you planned and fully enjoyed them. I miss him as a work partner and friend.
