Being around Jimmy would brighten up the day. Worked with him and for him and enjoyed it all. I considered him a good man. Looked forward to seeing him, he always had a smile and a story.
I've known Jim since I was a child. He is a fine man that made a career in the US Army, and saw a great part of our earth. He will be remembered as a friend and a man that I always admired. May he rest in everlasting peace.
Jim has been a good friend to my family for many years. He was such a hard worker, too. He painted my first 2 houses. He was faithful church member and a God fearing Christian. We will miss his visits and stories. We will be praying for his children and grandchildren, as we know that he will be dearly missed by them. - From The Crowell Family
