Remembering Jimmy, thats what we called him, from way back in the day when I was a young girl. He lived on the corner of my street. He was always a nice man, a gentle Giant is what I thought of him. I will forever remember him and his Mother, His wife and family. Very nice people. May he continue to Rest In Peace. ♀✝♥

My friend since 1962, I saw Jimmie first at a gym when I was in CYO boxing team. I saw him thru out the years until about ten or fifteen years ago. I often wondered where was Jimmie and was very sorry I lost contact with him. He was a loving and kind person who always had a smile on his face. I will miss Jimmie for the rest of my life,Love and peace to his family.
