At the time of Jim's passing, we were moving to the Atlanta area due to family and health issues or our own. You have my deepest sympathies. I will commemorate Jim in the Divine Liturgy.

Jim and I shared lots of stories about life and ham radio. I will deeply miss our talks. To Jim's family - What a trooper he was! The last time I talked to Jim, he accepted Our Lord's plan, and he told me that he was ready. Kathy - Thanks for attempting to call me and let me know of his passing. God bless each and every one of you.

So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I never realized that Jim lived in the Appleton area. It's been a long time since Jim and I spent time together in elementary school (grades 5 through 8 and graduation from St. Gregory the Great in Milwaukee). May your fond memories be a source of consolation at this difficult time. Godspeed Jim!

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Kathy, My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I met Jim 20 years ago through our shared passion for ham radio and we quickly became pals. He was caring for his father living in a duplex near me. Jim had a great sense of humor and I always admired how he weathered the many difficulties in his life. I let him know often his service to our nation was so appreciated. I will miss our regular chats on the local ham repeater, going to hamfests with him, and his visits to my house to chase "DX". Again my heartfelt condolences.

Sincere condolences regarding the passing of a truly wonderful and insightful friend. Fond memories growing up with Jim on the south side of Milwaukee off of 62nd and Oklahoma. Jim was a pioneer in radio (KBK-6804-11 meters CB) and later Amateur (Ham Radio). Special blessings from your friend Tom Hudzinski -another alumni from Pulaski High School. Jim was an inspiration to all. God's speed. Thank you buddy for your service in the U.S. Army. Your friends in Christ: Tom, Jeff, Randy and Ray Hudzinski
