Jim had a kind and generous heart and soul. I was a student of his and he made it a joy to be in his class. He loved teaching and made learning fun. Always had fun stories to tell and raved about his beautiful wife. I enjoyed keeping up with his Facebook posts. This world lost a great spirited man. Heaven gained one. Mary, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Our prayers and deepest sympathies are with you, Mary Ann. Jim was an outstanding instructor - his CPE's were a joy to take. He was very knowledgeable and always entertaining! With Jim there was never a "dumb" question. He was gracious and thorough in all his explanations. His legacy will live on and he will be missed terribly.

Jim was one of the first people that I worked for when I started my career in public accounting with Groner, Boyle & Quillin. He was so patient and such a great teacher. He will be missed by the accounting industry. My prayers are with you.

Mary Ann - so sorry about Jim. He was just the neatest guy. Absolute wonderful teacher of CPE to CPAs. Great sense of humor. So glad I got to know you both when Jim rented office space from me.

In fond memory of Jim, my fellow 3rd grade math tutor and friend.
Jim made a lot of struggling young folks' lives better by his faithful
and carefully thought out tutoring. And his demeanor always made
me (and the kids) smile. -- Jim Galloway
