I was so shocked at hearing this news. Jim was great college to work with. Always up beat, pleasant and helpful.
Over the years, it was always a pleasure to work with him, his knowledge made the job easier for many of us!

Your Canadian Co-worker and Friend!

My deepest condolences on Jim's passing. I interfaced with Jim for many years at CE/GE, et al, and he was always helpful in supporting the needs of our field service personnel at the company. Hopefully all the good times will be memories you can take forward.

Traveling as much as I do in field services, you don't get a chance to develop long lasting friendships, but my relationship with Jim was the exception.

We met for the first time in person many years ago when we shared a rental car on a business trip in New Mexico. An ice storm turned a 30 min drive to the plant into a 3 hour adventure, when we missed the turn and there was no place to turn around. After that experience, we looked each other up any time that I was in the offices at Windsor or at the National meeting.

Normally I dread when my business cell phone rings unexpectedly, because the news is usually not going to be good. But again Jim was the exception, when I saw that a call was from him, even if it was bad news I new that I would enjoyed talking to him and I knew in the end we would just be commiserating together over what ever the issue was, and figure out how to move forward.

I'm truly going to miss even those bad calls from my friend Jim.
