Dear Connie, So very sorry for ;your loss. Jimmy and I played Johnny Quest, married our dogs, Taffy and BoZo, had fun growing up and going to school together! I have very fond memories of him. He was a very kind and sweet man. It is very sad and frightening when your childhood friends and classmates pass away!

Our deepest sympathy, Connie, in the loss of Jimmy. He will truly be missed by us. Hardly a day would go by when he wasn't making us laugh. He was truly one of our favorites. What a great guy!

My longtime friend and partner in boyhood high jinks. Since grade school on, we have lived large and played hard for over 50 years. Just thinking of some of our ventures makes me laugh-out-loud. Road trips in vintage cars, gambling at the race track, poker games and all night Monopoly were a blast.
