Jim was such a great guy. Most of the time it was a quick phone call to him, and he was out right away to repair on our equipment. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Joe Rothan Lancaster Toyota.

I am so saddened to see that Jim has passed, I knew him for many years from being an auto mechanic and he would always be taking care of our alignment equipment which of course was Hunter. He also got me enrolled in Hunter Engineering's alignment school.. Whenever I had an issue with equipment, you could always count on Jim.... Godspeed my friend...

I hadn't seen Jim for many years...but that really doesn't matter. I'll always remember him as a great friend from grade school and high school.

I'm sorry to hear of Jim's passing. My condolences to the family. Jim and I started with Hunter at the same time back in 1987. He was a kind and friendly guy, gone too soon. Rest in peace, Jim.
