Jim was a man of who always approached you with a hand shake and a smile. I will miss Jim, for he was a man of "Qualities" that are of few and far between these days.
My condolences to the family.

Dear Africa Family,

I'm very sorry to hear about Jim. I met him shortly after he moved to Redding and opened the Jiffy Mart. He was a kind, funny, classy and a hard working guy.

We talked about sports and also about TV shows like 'Hart to Hart' and 'The Fall Guy' which he was involved with I believe. Jeff Pew, Dana McLemore, Kevin Fidell and Danny Andrago were some of the people he told me about.

I went to a football game with his son Jay at the Univ. of Oregon in 1981 to watch Jay's Venice High classmate Pew play in. Jim and Jay were both great people. I will always remember them.

To the Africa Family, I owe so much to "Big Jim". He was a mentor and role model for me at Jiffy Mart. A good man and a great friend.

To The Entire Africa Family,
Condolences to each and every one of you.
I remember Jim from Jiffy Mart. However, I really got to know and LOVE HIM at the golf course. To say he will be missed is an under statement. Jim was one in a million, positive, always upbeat, funny beyond belief, HONEST, a truly HARD WORKER, and a pretty darn good golfer,(when his back wasn't hurting). He loved his family and was very proud of his children and grandchildren. I can hear his laughter and see his smile. His passing is a great loss to many. I only hope there is CROWN ROYAL in heaven. I do and will miss you my FRIEND. We're happy to donate to the Heart Association in your name because you had such a great big heart!
