I called on Jim as a marketing rep for Genesee Brewing Company. Jim was always open to my "big ideas" and was one of the most memorable characters I met in my 33 years in the beer business. My thoughts are with his family.

It is such a sad time for the family, but I just know Uncle Jim is up there in heaven telling jokes and making everyone laugh! I can almost hear him telling his "washy, washy" joke now... He'd want us to remember him with a big smile on our faces even if we have heavy hearts. Love to my Maine cousins, Jodi, Judi, Jim, and Don and best to Judith at this time of loss.
See you all tomorrow.
With sympathy, love, and hugs, Kim

Over thirty years ago I had the fortune of meeting Jim and Julie when I dated then married their niece, Betsy. While she and I have not been married for many years, I will always remember the warmth, laughter and caring that Jim extended to those around him. Whenever I am at a hockey game, I think back to the Mariners' years and have kept an eye out for Jim. I extend my sincerest condolences to all of the family and hope that he will remain always in your hearts and minds.

Judith, Jodi, Judi, Don and Jim as well as Susan and Donna,

I guess that you already know how Mary Lou and I feel and our sympathy for you all as well as his Cape High classmates of '55 and the Norwich classmates of '59. We all loved Jim so much and I personally will miss him. We often talked that our relationship was that of two brothers. That's the way I'll always remember him.

Jodi & Tim, Judi & Richard, Jim & Gina, Donald & Kathleen & Natasha. We feel all the time we spent with your Mom and Dad was very special, especially our trip to Maine. We had so much fun and so many laughs with Donna and Warren and their wonderful friends who cooked all the lobsters. We will never forget the kindness your family had shown to us. We love all of you and we will keep you in our prayers always. To Judith, please accept our deepest sympathy. Fondly Cherie & John Hopson

Jodi, Judy Ann, Jimmy and Donald,
Brad and I are so sorry to hear of your Father's passing.
I have always thought of you all as part of our "Maine Family". So many wonderful memories! In particular I remember spending weekends with you at the house in Gorham, riding the horses (Jim and Julie!!!:))), swimming in the pool and laughing until our sides hurt. I'll never forget your Dad hitting the end of the diving board with his butt, flying up in the air and splashing/belly flopping into the pool. Loved spending time with your Mom and Dad when they were RVing with my parents in Sarasota, FL.
Our deepest sympathies to you all and your families in this difficult time. Sending you love, light and prayers.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to do some RV traveling with Jim and Julie. It was always a good time with many laughs and good card games.
My heartfelt condolences to his family.
