Sorry to hear of Jim's passing, I have worked with Jim for over 30 years, when I started jim would always help me and I considered him a mentor, he always had the same helpful attitude with other maintenance people and everyone else. Going to miss our reminisce of the old days when we would run into each other( half hour at least) at Westlakes. Mark Barron

I knew Jim from working at Dura. After he retired and I would run into him some where, he always took the time to stop and visit and catch up. Such a nice, nice guy. So very sorry to hear of his passing. Sending heartfelt condolences to all of his family.
