Jim was an amazing neighbor and person! I can't tell you how many times he stepped in to help when I was having some crazy problem with my house or yard. I will so miss hearing his cheerful laugh. Lots of love to Rose and to all of Jim's family.

I worked alongside of Jim back in the mid 70's.We built some awesome custom homes all around the fox valley.I really enjoyed working with him.We shared stories about our time serving our country.We had a good crew and often tipped a few on Fridays to start the weekend.I am recovering from a hip replacement surgery and will not be able to attend his service.It brings on a few tears thinking about the 21 gun salute I would love to have witnessed.I salute you Jim and I was blessed to have known you.....Rudy Van Hout

Mary Kay and Bill (Lorge) Lerche left a message on December 30, 2021:
Jim was such a great friend. We both have so many great memories with Jim and Roses. I think one of Lorge's favorites is, on probably their last long ride together, Jim wanted a slice of pie. He loved pie. Together the 4 bikers, Jim, Richie, Bill and Lorge stopped in at a "boutique" because there was a sign in the window PIE served here ! There they were among the doilies, tea cups and saucers eating their pie ! Always lots of laughs with you Jim. Rest in Peace our friend and brother. We will miss you.
