I was sorry to hear of Jimmy’s passing. Growing up in the Eastmoor area, we’d play baseball all summer at Fairmoor Elementary. Jimmy wasn’t that big (I guess none of us were), but he’d always hit the ball a long way. I remember him hitting a long ball that took one bounce and shattered a school window. He was always a great teammate!

My thoughts and prayers to all. I had the privilege of being Jim's guardian on Honor Flight Mission 106. His service, dedication and memories live on in each of us that had the pleasure to know him.

Jim was a good friend to me. I was in the Bible study group with him for about 7 years. I saw him grow to love and depend on the Lord deeply as time went by. I was blessed to have known him and fully plan on seeing him again in Heaven. I hope the family heals soon. Sincerely- Bruce Patrick
