    I think I feel the same as anyone that knew Jim. He was such a pleasure to be around. Always a smile on his face and a kind word. I loved seeing him on the golf course

    Jim was a true gentleman and a kindness came from his soul everyday. He left a positive mark with all of us that knew him and shared a round of golf with him. I feel very lucky to have been able to call Jim my friend.

  • Uncle Jim always had a smile on his face. He was kind, generous and thoughtful. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. He was a man of great character. Forever in our hearts ♥️

    Jim was the kindest, most helpful guy you would ever want to meet. He was there to help fix my broken sprinkler pipe, and lend a helping hand on other occasions. He even offered to be our taxi to the airport at 4:15 a.m. on several occasions! A GREAT neighbor and friend. We wish we had known you more than just the 3-1/2 years living next door to you and Jonene. We miss you very much, Jim… and we will take good care of the love of your life!!

  • Life at the golf course will not be the same without Jim. We will miss seeing his car is his parking spot and him in his shorts!
    He will be missed by so many 🙁

    We loved Jim. One of the kindest and gentlest and generous people that was put on this earth.
    We will miss him and remember him, always. Our deepest sympathy to Jonene, his wife and the rest of his family
