What a prankster Jim was. We hunted together in the late 90's and were cleaning deer when I cut myself. Claiming to be a butcher in his early days his cure was for me to soak my hand in bleach. I can still hear him laughing from my reaction of pain. Sorry for your loss Kay.

To the Jim Rathmann Family - I was happy to have done business with Jim Rathmann. Jim always had an interesting story about racing or the Space Coast. He had a great outlook on life and with business. God bless Jim and your entire family during this time.

It's so sad to lose another of motorsports's greats. I remember hanging out in Jim's speedshop in Miami in the fifties, and watching my buddies race go-carts that they bought from Jim, while sitting in my car so I could listen on the radio to his great battle with Rodger Ward in 1960. It wasn't until a few month's ago that I actually got to see the 1960 Indy 500 on YouTube. Jim, you will be sorely missed, but not forgotten.

Kay and Rathmann Family,

I was sad to hear about the passing of JR. I enjoyed my time with him and his spirit will live on. He was 'one of kind!' Cutting yourself out of a body cast to race is a feat upon itself! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Kindest Regards,
Dan Dourney, PT

I was shocked and deeply saddened to read of Jim`s death.We go all way the back to the late 1940`s when Jim and Dick came to Chicago to race the hot rods.I was co-pilot with Jim driving the Doane Oldsmobile in the Mexican Road Race in 1953.My condolences to Kaye and the family.
