  1. So many memories of my big brother. When he was 10 he became the man of the house. He mentored us and taught us to be who we are. I’m forever grateful ♥️
    I’m happy that he is with his soulmate and love of his life, Gail.
    Deepest condolences to Shannon and Aaron and your families.
    Rest In Peace dearest brother.

  2. Aaron and Joanna. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Keep all of his memories close to Heart and he will always be with you. Hugs to you and the girls.

  3. I’ll miss my big brother for as long as I live. He was a kind, caring and generous person and was loved by all who knew him. Our family is poorer for this loss, but richer for having had Jim in our lives. Rest in peace, dear brother. I love you.

  4. A life time of memories, to all that knew Jim, is what we are left with.
    Jim was a great guy, who touched the soul of everyone, that had the pleasure to know him.
