We grew up in the same little town that had a skating ring that all of us young kids enjoyed. Jim was a very nice easy going boy growing up. We send our prayers to his family & will miss him at our next Belknap Skating Reunion!!!

Lucy and Family
Bob and I want to let you know how much we enjoyed Jim's friendship with the Class of 1958. The picture of Jim reminds us of the fun times and the fellowship. How lucky we are to have those memories of both of you and the luncheons to keep with us as our special treasures of a special person. May he RIP and may the memories you have and the fun times help lighten the load of your loss at this time.
Prayers and sympathies to all of you.
Bob and Sue

So sad to hear this. Jim is just a figure that's been around my whole life. So many images in my memory growing up of him. Brian, thinking of you and the whole family right now.
Much love...Corey Hutchins

Papa Cheese! We love your sense of humor, chuckles at stories we shared camping and there's always something to talk about around the campfire. Lucy, Brian, Jackie, Katie and Allie you are in our thoughts and our collective heart hurts for you in this time of loss. Smooches.
