I am very sorry to hear of James’s passing.
We “ran around” together back in the 1970’s, and sadly broke off later on. Jim was always fun to be with.
We even worked together at Zechman’s Sunoco on the corner of West Orange St. and Marietta Ave. and later at Presteige Mobile Homes.
He was a good friend and he always reached out and cared for his friends.
Jim is in a better place now, in Heaven, and when my time comes, I will see Him again.
Sincerely, Bill Hecker

I am very sorry to hear this new. Jimmy was a roommate of mine with my then husband. He was uncle Jimmy to my children. We talked a lot on the phone even after he moved out. We kept in contact for many years. I know his daughter and him were very close.
