    I’ve known Jim since 1987. Jim was the kind of guy who would give the shirt off his back. Once he was your friend he was your friend forever. He loved his family more than anything. If ever he was in Katy TX he’d look me up & we’d have a drink together. I will miss you. Hook ’em Horns!!

    I have known Jim since we were in junior high school in San Antonio in 1969. He helped us move into our house in Katy. He made fun of us for moving so far out in the country. He was living in Alief. It was about a year later when he bought a Perry home in Katy, Where he lived until he moved to Arkansas. You will greatly missed buddy. CHEERS 🥃🥃

      My apologies, Jim and I first meet in 1962. We graduated from Robert E. Lee HS in May 1967. I’m so glad we saw each other at our 50th. class reunion.

    I was in the same class with Jim at Robert E. Lee HS in San Antonio. I remember his sweet smile and was fortunate to have had his help in Geometry class (including looking at his answers during tests!) because he was far more capable than I. It was great reconnecting at HS reunions, and I enjoyed being his friend on FB in the past couple years. My most heartfelt condolences to his family.

    I remember Jimmy Ginn. He was an honest man, and those are hard to forget. From a friend back at Robert E. Lee High, 1967.

    I just learned of Jim’s passing. He as been on my mind for weeks and now I know why.

    I had not talked with Jim for several months. We were staying in touch after we both retired. With both of us having medical complications. He did a better job than me.

    Jim was a good friend who I had known for over 40 years. He called on me. We both lived in Katy.

    I knew Jim was in poor health, but simply did not check on him.

    You were a special guy and I’ll miss you. Gather all the Longhorns there, if there are any, and I’ll try and find some Tigers and we’ll see what the national champs are made of.

    Rest In Peace, old friend.
