During the time I knew Jim he was a model citizen... and Marci was a saint. They helped me so much on my political campaign in 1988 and I had previously worked with Jim in the American Cancer Society. I wish you a fond farewell. Dan Stevens

In the years I've known Jim he was a quiet, gentle person who always had a smile and whose quick wit often made me laugh. He was a model citizen serving the others in so many ways. Our community lost a really good man and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. May eternal rest be granted unto him.
