Jim and I met in 1960.He got me a job with CCC which later led to a future in the can business with major corporations as a manager. He was so friendly to my Mother and Father. I owe my career to Jim.His wife was his life in later years and their love for each other was oh so obvious.To all relatives and friends my deepest sympathy.Forget we will NOT remember we WILL.

God blessed my life with my dear brother Jim. He was a very loving brother and our growing up years could not have been better. He always made me laugh until I cried. I could go on and on of my wonderful memories of him. Never forgotten always in my heart.
