It was and still is a sad day for so many of us. Jim and I shared so many memories. The last reunion in Sidney after dinner Jim and I shared a beer (or two) and for almost two hours we just talked about all the things (good and bad) we did together during our high school years.

Rest in Pease dear Jim

Fond memories of Jim, a classmate and football teammate, always a friendly smile that endured into the occasional class reunions. Enjoyed posts on Facebook that gave us glimpses of a happy Father and Grandfather. Jim is already missed.
