  1. We knew Jim from meeting Him at the Village at Mill Landing. It was always a pleasure to see Him & talk with Him. He was a Gentleman. We miss seeing Him.
    We’ll also miss seeing Him at Jim’s Restaurant.

  2. Mary Kay and family,
    My deepest sympathies to all of you on the passing of your dad. He was my favorite boss at RG&E. Along with work he always took an interest in my family. Our days always started with him, Paul Hallock and I sharing family updates. Even after he retired I could always count on him for a donation to my daughter Lindsay’s Juvenile Diabetes walk team. He was a true gentleman and will be sadly missed.

  3. Jim and Cheryl I am so sorry for your loss. It looks like he had a wonderful life. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
