My name is Bill Acker, I grew up with Dobbin, I lived at my parents house at 134 South Sidney St. Kimberly. Jim lived across the street from me and graduated with me at Kimberly High School in 1969. I was hoping to see him next year at our 50 th anniversary. So finding out about his death really shocked me since I did not know about his cancer. I have many great memories of growing up with Jim and all the other neighborhood kids on Sidney street. Jim's dad Chub would take us fishing on his boat. I wish I had the right words to help easy your pain, but I can tell you that he has been on my mind and that he was a great friend. After graduation I moved to Green Bay so I have not seen him for around 10 years or more. I will really miss Jim and I hope your memories will help you get through this difficult time.
