Jim was one of a kind think God got rid of the mold. He was kind generous loving never met a stranger that he wasn't kind to. Enjoyed working with him. He loved his wife more than life itself. Becky was his number one. He loved his grandchildren they were also number one. Prayers to the family. He will be truly missed. What a great friend.
