My condolences and best wishes go out to the Fitzsimons Family. Jim was a dear friend and fraternity brother. We Joined Alpha Sigma Phi together and were initiated on the same day in 1970. I have so many precious memories with Jim from way back then to the reunion camping weekends the past 5 years. Back in college a couple of my fondest memories are the skiing class we took together and driving his VW up Big Bay road drinking GIQ's just to mention a couple. Really enjoyed golfing with him at the camp-outs and just hanging out with several of our brothers. Would have loved to see that last golf game. I know how much he loved the sport. Jim was an outstanding brother and we all will miss him dearly. Rest in Peace Fitz and we will see you again in the Omega Chapter.
