I remember a story that Jim told me in the last years he owned the Skybolt when highway 10 was being built from Appleton to Fremont. He said before the highway was opened for traffic it was one of best smoothest unobstructed surfaces to do touch and goes. He may or may not have dragged his wheels down the highway for fun. A true barnstormer!
I am so sorry to learn of Jim's passing.I have happy memories of Mary living next door, holiday time spent at your home in Winona Court and summer visits with mom to the " cottage" at Waupaca. Thank goodness for memories that can never be taken away from us. Thank you Julie for staying in contact. If we get back to Appleton I will certainly stop to visit Mary.
I offer my love and sympathy to you and your family.
I, too, am sad that your wonderful Jim has passed!
Bob and I were so fortunate to know Jim - and you, of course, - for the many years that we shared memorable times together on the Chain O'Lakes.
I am still in Naples and will not be able to be at Jim's memorial service but I will be thinking of you tomorrow and hope to see you this summer. May the wonderful memories you have of Jim bring you comfort at this difficult time.
So-so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. I am so disappointed that I will not be able to attend the service on Friday because I am chairing a Mother/Daughter Tea at our church .Greg will attend and represent us. Hugs, Mary Kay
My sentiments to you and your family.
I hope you are doing well.
My deepest sympathies for your loss. Thanks so much for sharing the story of Jim's amazing life, truly a life well-lived!
I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad sounds like a wonderful person and a fine example for us all.
Much love, Jill Paule
