I worked with Jimmy for many years at PRO-FM He was always the life of the party and treated everyone the same. He loved his daughters and I send them my sincere condolences to them. Your father was a good man. And everyone loved him. Rest in Paradise my friend.

I knew Jimmy when I lived in New Bedford. He was about 12 at the time and I was about 6. I remember he would visit my mother with his mother Anne as they were good friends.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

I'm so sad about Jimmy. He was so much fun to work with at Pro-FM especially when he created Roda Blabbit for me. I loved being Roda and being with Jimmy on and off the air.
I'm so thankful I got to visit him in Bristol a few times with my sister Marie, who worked with him also at Pro. Thanks for the laughs Jimmy. You'll be missed!!
My condolences to his family.

So sorry to hear the news of Jimmy's passing. What a GREAT guy! Lot's of fond memories working with Jimmy from the old PRO-FM days.
