I have been a friend of Jim for over 30 years. I was a member of he Board of Directors of Carmel Valley Manor and I participated in hiring him as CEO. He was terrific in his responsibilities and I valued his friendship and was sorry to have him retire. Over the last few years I ran into him from time to time often at the Symphony. Jim was an outstanding and overly generous member of the community. He will be missed. You should know he was proud of his family.
