Jim was a family man who never missed an opportunity to express how much he loved and cared about his wife, children and grandchildren. He also had the ability to share many memories of his long-standing friendships. In my case, Jim would always remind me, “I’ll never forget watching you play golf at Crooked Stick in Indianapolis (and, I never knew he was even there!) Jim had so many wonderful “people skills” which endeared him to anyone who was his friend. R.I.P. my friend. You touched the lives of others in so many unforgettable ways.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I met Jim 50 years ago at the Lafayette YMCA ! Competed with and against him in a thousand basketball games with never a cross word between us! Jim was a good friend, a good teammate , and a good good man! I’ll miss our shared analysis of our dear Boilermakers in the years ahead! My condolences to Rob and Cathy and the rest of his family! Rest In Peace JW
