Jim was my co-worker starting in 1991. He was my lead for several years, providing invaluable training, knowledge sharing, and most importantly life lesson sharing to me as a youngster way back then. May tbe memories of Jim last in the hearts of family and friends for eternity.

Bonnie and family,
It was our pleasure to have shared in Jim's life at The Boeing Company. He was so warm, approachable and had such a kind demeanor. He lovingly shared his expert knowledge to so many others!! Both Electrical Engineers from State Universities, we worked together for many decades, but our lasting bonds were in helping the community.
Bless you and yours as we will remember him forever!
