My deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved Jim. He touched so many lives with his kindness. Once you met the guy, you never forgot him. Jim worked for me in the mid 1980s at the Bulletin weekly newspaper in Kenosha for about a year, as an inserter. Inserters slipped advertising material into each Bulletin and tied them into bundles. He was the best worker I had, always on time, courteous, and oh, that smile! He was so cheerful, kind and sharing. Once, he let me use his postcard collection to illustrate one of my local history columns. It was a sad day when I had to tell him the inserting jobs were being eliminated, due to outsourcing to the Kenosha News. I'd see him downtown now and then after that and we'd chat. Last Tuesday, my friend of 50 years, Sue Liu were talking and somehow Jim's name came up in the conversation. We were astonished to discover we both knew Jim. We shared our "Jim" stories and agreed in our assessment: Jim was a wonderful man. We had no idea he had just died two days earlier. Jim left his mark on the world. Bless him and you, his family.

In the 50‘s, Jim and I were in Orthopedic school together. He was seven years my senior so I knew him as a big, gentile giant. He used to construct Rube Goldberg style contraptions from the materials available in his desk. With great joy he would drop marbles through these creations and we would watch to see if they would make it to his finish line. Several times as an adult, I was lucky to meet up with Jim at the Saturday farmer’s market or while he waited for the bus on Sheridan after work. His face always lit up with a smile - his eyes had the twinkle of a mischievous kid. Jim was an inspiration to me - both as a child and as an adult. Rest in Peace Jim.

My condolences to your family. Jim was a wonderful person, so full of life, so much fun! He cared dearly about others and was always there to help others. We worked together at KAC, and was a dedicated employee. So sorry for your loss.
