    Jim was a fun loving brother and brother in law and uncle and will be truly missed but he is now with his Mom and Dad and big brother Jack who adored him. There will surely be a fun party now that they are all together eternally. We will miss you always, Jim.

  11. We are very sad at the passing of our uncle Jimmy. We didn’t see each other often enough but he was never far from our thoughts and hearts. I have read the other condolences and he had some great friends with fond memories. I know where he got that great laugh from that you all are talking about and that would be from my dad his big brother. Well they are together now so the loud, boisterous and contagious laugh will continue. We love you and will forever miss you uncle Jimmy. Say hi to dad when you meet him again.
    Love Judi, Jeff, Steph(Chris and Ryann), Jeffery, Shannon(Devin and Jakob), Michael and Mackenzie xoxoxox

    One of the greatest guys I ever met. Jimmy did his comedy routine every Friday nite at 102 Legion, and nobody left when he was on fire. Had the most infectious laugh that never let up. Nothing but great memories. I’ll never forget. Rest In Peace Jimmy and keep it low into the wind.

  18. Didn’t see Jimmy enough over the last few years, but spent many nights at the 102 Legion with him. He was just a big huggable guy, I can hear his laugh and it made everyone feel happy. He always let me use his personal cue (when they would let the girls play on the big table). He will be sorely missed. Very sorry for your loss.

    How do you write a few words about someone who’s played such a huge part in your life. You were a mentor, confidante, great neighbour and most of all a dear dear friend. I will miss you so much and you’ve left a huge hole in my heart. With so many fond memories of one of the most wonderful people I’ve met. My condolences to all his family and friends. To have known him is to have loved him.

    I still have fond memories of our times on the Island as kids and the year we all went to Expo 67, which was the last time I saw Jim, and since we were the same age, it has come as quite a shock.
    My sincere condolences to his family and cousins Frank, Nancy and Tom.

    I have considered Jim a great friend and colleague for over 30 years. Taking instructions on his cases was always done in a pragmatic yet fun manner. His loss to me on a personal level is immeasureable. Just before his untimely departure we discussed going to Phoenix to golf and to see if he could redo the most unbelievable “eagle ” I ever saw. That will have to wait.
