    I met Jim in the mid 80s and I bought a lot of cars from him and always enjoyed dealing with him. He was a kind person and will definitely be missed by those who knew him.

    Jim and I were knock around buddies as teenagers. He was about 3 years older than me, but I have thought about him often and the laughs we had. Hate to hear about losing him. So sorry for your loss!
