I was shocked to hear of Jim's passing. We were best friends in high school and were team-mates on the '64 Jefferson H. S. State Champ Bronchos. I mostly called him Jim, but he was affectionately known to us all as BoBo. We shared many memories, both good and bad; but I knew instinctively that deep down, he had a very tender heart. His service to this country and to the Lafayette community as a Fire Fighter bears this out. We talked frequently through the years. I loved him and he loved me.I'll miss him greatly and surely I will see him again. I send God's blessings and my condolences to Nancy, Chad, and Angela.

Chad and family, my heart is so heavy with the sad news of Jim's passing. I always enjoyed talking to him when he came into the center. I am sure he will be missed by all of you and his friends.
Dr. Dennis L. McElhoe left a message on June 17, 2020:
No words can properly express my sadness on learning of Jim's passing. As I look back on my years with the LFD, I can say without a doubt the years I cherish the most are those years I worked with Jim at #7. I'm sure at times we got on Doc Linville's Jack Bowerman's and John Boe's nerves with our antics, but when the alarm rang Jim was all business and among the LFD's best. It was a distinct honor and privlege to have worked with Jim and more importantly to have known him as a good friend. My sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers are with Nancy, Angie, Chad and their families. Dennis McElhoe Fort Mill South Carolina
