First, my deepest and belated condolences to the Calabrese and Surface families. As a boy, I knew Jim as a "hip" and hilarious music student at Concord. He played for Mr. Bill Caruth in the Concord Commanders and could wail on a
saxophone. He was always a gentleman who treated me like a man. I had the honor and pleasure of playing street football
with him and many jam sessions over the years. He and Mavis
were a handsome and devoted couple who never seemed to
age. May he forever rest in peace.
