After Craigs Dad died - Jim came and spent several weeks at our home to help with harvest. He did this for several years- sacrificing his time to help us.-What a blessing he was.. He would joke with our two boys and they had a blast with him. Many memories were made during those visits. Thanks Lynnete for sharing him with us- it was a sacrifice on your end too. Praying for you now and will continue to do so.

Jim was one of the lights of the neighborhood. He always had a smile and a wave and you knew if you needed something you could rely on Jim. I admired his dedication to his wife and family. He showed us all how to do it right.

I remember first meeting Jim when he was employed as a truck salesman at Lakeside International Trucks, Inc. He was an outstanding sales person who related in an excellent manner with his customers. Jim and I became close friends. I retired in 2002 and began spending a majority of my time up here at our cabin on Lake Puckaway, near Montello, Wisconsin. Jim would come up here especially during the ice fishing season and we enjoyed many moments of fun
