Dear Jenny and Family, I want to express my deepest sympathy in the passing Of your Dear Husband, Father, Grandpa, Co-worker, Friend, Caregiver, Protector........the descriptions could go on forever!!! He was so proud of his Family and took such great Pride in his Life adventures. We had quite a History, as I am sure he did with many. If Jim had something to say you can bet it would get said.

Jim was such a nice man. He always had a smile to share. He was so kind to children. He recently gave my grandson a baseball at the Raptors made his night. I will always remember his kindness and smile.

My deepest condolences to family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Jim for several years. My experiences with Jim were always unique, each time we spoke a new and enjoyable story or experience unfolded about his life, truly enjoyed our conversations. It was obvious when I visited the work place to have our meetings he was well known and well liked by seemingly every person in the building. Truly Jim will be missed by so many.

I had the honor of working with Jim for the last five years. I talked to him at least once a week and knew that no matter what the issue; Jim would take care of it. He took so much pride in his work and loved what he didand it defiantly showed in the Scowcroft Building. I will miss picking up the phone to call him and hear, “Hi Gal” on the other end. My son plays high school baseball and we would talk baseball, horses, our dogs, and love of the outdoors. Jim was always willing to help anyone; if he knew you needed something and he considered you a friend, he would always be there. He is going to me missed greatly by all that knew and worked with him. He was definitely one of a kind! Gina Carter Cottonwood Partners Assistant Property Manager
