I met Jimmy for the first time recently at Costco. I was unaware of his background in the local Radio scene. I was immediately taken by how engaging he was as we shared stories and memories of NYC. I can honestly say that those few moments with him will not be forgotten. May you rest in peace.

I was sorry to learn of James' passing. I met him last year at Costco when I needed help with a hearing aid. He was funny, patient and kind with me and others.

I am thinking of Jimmy loving Christmas and even playing Christmas music in the middle of July on a warm summer night while entertaining friends and family in his and Louise's special and beautiful home where they welcomed so many people so many times for so many years. He loved everything and everyone, as did his whole family. Love you all ❤

It's been more than 30 years since we formed the "Icicles" fan club. Today, we fondly remembered that time when our lives and his intertwined. He brought laughter and joy (along with music) to our lives.
May your memories of your time with him bring you comfort now, and joy forever.

Jimmy will always bring sunflowers to my mind. And sunflowers always bring a smile, happiness, and sense of serenity. On a celebration held at their home, Jimmy gave me 2 dozen sunflower plants that he had culled from his garden. I took them home, and started a row of sunflowers bordering my yard. That was years ago.... I still plant and grow that row of sunflowers, from seeds of those flowers. He will always be remembered by me.

During the past year, I had the pleasure of meeting James 2-3 times while he was patiently assisting my mother with hearing aids at Costco. A wonderful and kind gentleman with a keen sense of humor. So sorry to hear of his untimely passing. May his memory be for a blessing.
