    My deepest sympathies are extended to all of Jim’s family & friends, both very large groups. I understand your loss & appreciate this with deep feelings of empathy from our friendship of over forty years. Jim was always totally sincere & real in life & truly a genuine friend to all. We spent some very special meaningful times together in the past few months & I, like everyone who knew Jim, will miss him immensely.

    Cannot begin to express how sad we are to hear of Jim’s tragic fall and passing. Our sincere sympathy and condolences to Sarah and Josh and their families in the loss of their father, grandfather, and great grandfather.

    Jim and Laurie were both special friends during our early marriage and parenthood days out in Riverside Acres. Our times together will also be among our most cherished memories. I am only consoled that they are once again united.

    Jim was my supervisor at Vishay-Dale. He was always very good, kind and thoughtful. When I had problems he was understanding and patient. He was very much in love with his wife Laurie and adored his family. I admired that in him.
    Another wonderful man has gone to join his soulmate. My deepest condolences to his family.
