We have so any happy memories at the baseball games for Austin and Justin. Russ would talk baseball and the boys to Jim all the time while us ladies chatted in the bleachers. He was such a wonderful man and he loved his grandchildren! Blessings to the whole family! Russ and dawn

Jim was a larger-than-life person, and an incredibly loving family man. I feel so fortunate that he was not only my cousin, but also my friend. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Jim’s family at this time of tremendous loss. He will live in our memories forever.
