Sorry we are not able to be with you today. We are thinking of all of you.
We met Jim through our friendship with his son, Dave. On many occasions Jim and Lois invited us into their home. Jim was always quick with a joke and always ready to trade good natured Harley vs. Honda “insults” with Jason. He was a good man & will be missed. Our love & prayers to the family.
I worked final assembly with Jim 86/9. Jim was a fine man and patriot. A loss for all that ever met him. God Bless.
