Coach Wild and coached and taught together at HIghland Park Junior High School back in the late 60s. We became even closer when he invited me to work with him in his woodworking shop. We worked evenings and some weekends after Thanksgiving make our Christmas presents. As young teachers, we had a shortage of money which required us to be more creative. I was a real novice in the shop, but Jim patiently taught me as he did his students. Early on I used the same projects as his beginning students. Here some half century later, at least two of my relatives still have their pig cutting boards. Those are fond memories. I left teaching after three years and lost track of Jim. I never remember him saying negative things about anyone. He was a class act and fun at work or play. I probably never told him how much I appreciated him. Rest In Peace, my friend for a life well lived.

We were all lucky to have been influenced by Coach Wild. He ruled with a firm hand but a smile on his face that was infectious to all around. He was sincere and honest. When he said something good about you, you knew it was real and it meant the world.

Jim and I taught for nine years together at McCulloch Middle School. He was my colleague and my friend, and I mourn his passing. He had a great sense of humor, and he would do anything for a friend. I'm glad you posted the video. The last time I spoke with Jim was just before he moved to Spring, Tx, and he was excited about moving there. I'll miss his spirit.
