So sorry to hear about Jim’s passing and condolences to his family and many friends. We still miss Jim at our annual deer hunting get together. He was always the life of the party and a great story teller. He was really a great shot too-I swear he could hit a deer from a mile away!!! RIP Jim!!!

Tom & Renee Lewic

Janice and John, It would be difficult to measure the impact Jim made on the many people’s lives that he touched personally and professionally. We remember the numerous conversations and laughs from the past at your home. Jim had an amazing sense of humor and was a good story teller. May God bless and comfort you and your family.
Sincere condolences,
Tom & Maureen Lewic


Janice and John. Sorry we will miss the services. Always enjoyed our many Super Bowls together and Jim’s many visits to the fire department playing cribbage and back gammon. Best of wishes to you.
