    Thursday, June 15, 2017 5:32 PM St. Petersburg, Russia My Uncle Jim provided wonderful Summer vacations for me when I was young. We would work all evening building “traction masters” and go-carts in his garage. He took me on a two-week road trip through Canada in a very fast Chevy 409. Weekend in Sarnia, Canada at the Holiday Inn were marvelous. He wired my first house in West Branch, Michigan and built a hydraulic wood-splitter for me. I flew with him every chance I got. He will be missed and my sincerely sympathy goes to all his family and friends. With all my love, bill martin 116 Grand Pavilion Isle of Palms SC 29451

    What a great Uncle he was! He always was giving us rides in the coolest cars at that time or flying us in his plane! I have many fond memories of holiday gatherings and Michigan summer picnics - he was the life of the party with that infectious laugh! He and my dad were good friends and enjoyed their time together smoking cigars and telling jokes. May he rest in peace.
