Jim was a gentleman and a hard nosed businessman who gave his very best to our community. Thank you Jim.

And Pat - our prayers are with you.

I fondly remember Jim as a key element in the success of Memorex Corp. I wish all the best to his family in his passing. Like my father who passed away in 1993, I'm sure Jim has taken over management of a key part of the next life. Go get 'em Jim!
