  10. I first met Jim at our neighbourhood pub in Silver Springs. From time to time we would share a pint or two and of greater significance, a few hours of fine companionship. But what turly touched me about Jim in a personal way was his regard for others.

    When I lost my brother to cancer just about one year ago now, Jim took the time, effort and care to be at Bruce’s Memorial Service, even though he was sick with the same disease. That meant a lot to me and I think, speaks volumes of Jim.

    To you his family, please accept my heartfelt condolences. I know he will be greatly missed.

  15. Carol and family, I was very sad to hear about Jim passing. I met Jim over a pint or two at the local pub. No doubt golf being the most popular topic. I will always remember our round at Redwood together. Memory of a life. My prayers are with you.
