    We at Kodak knew Jim as a ‘gentle giant,’ a soft spoken man who took pride in is work and never complained. He commanded respect from all who knew him.

    So sorry for your loss. I only know Mr. Baker from ETW. He was in the same wing as my Mom. I miss seeing him there and his wife when she visited, though we only spoke a few times.
