Not sure what to say?

Simply a gentleman and a scholar. Jim was my P.E. teacher at Evergreen in 1963. I covered sports for the Highline Times in the 70's often interviewing him for quotes about his teams. He will be missed.

Mr. Robeck was my P.E. teacher at Highline my freshman year. I started the year hating gym class, and finished the year with an appreciation for exercise and teamwork. Thanks for teaching us all to have a positive attitude, even in the face of diversity. You'll be missed, Mr. Robeck.
