I first met Jim at AFWTF in Puerto Rico, he would visit our Aerial Targets Shop at least once a year. We had great times and we all knew we had a great friend in him that lasted for many years. May all your family find comfort during this difficult time. Rest in everlasting peace.

I first met Jim at Point Mugu in 1985 and very quickly learned that he was a man who knew how to get things done. When he moved to Chincoteague a few years later, he reinforced that "can do" reputation on the Eastern Shore and made friends so quickly you would swear he had lived there all his life. It was an honor and a blessing to have known him. Rest in peace, old buddy.

Jim was a long time friend who had many stories to tell. I believe that I had heard them all more than once but wish that I could hear him tell them once again. I appreciate all of the great advice, both professional and personal, given over the years. RIP Friend Jim
