Condolences

Sending my deepest sympathy. Remembering good times with Jim as a classmate of 1964.

Deepest sympathy for Jim's family and Friends, you'll be in our prayers.

A lifelong true friend that continued to shine. Be it playing at Oak street school, Football in High school or enjoying an ohio state football game, I always counted him as one that always found the time to keep in touch. When you make your list of true fiends he certainly fits the bill.
Prayers for his family.

“So long my friend “ My deepest sympathy for all of Jim’s family. The memories of our times together will never be forgotten my friend. “Godspeed”
