    I still remember Jim's willingness to help me reassemble my transmission when I knocked it over by accident when replacing the seals. He was willing to lend a hand to many people when they needed help. Jim has joined Sherry with the Church Triumphant and we will miss him.

    Family, I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was a great friend and co-worker at Lutheridge. He actually was the one who taught me most of what I know about Lutheridge.I will miss him. May God's Peace surround your family and give you comfort.
