My Uncle, My Buddy, As kids Uncle Buddy always made us laugh and feel as important as any adult in the room. As adults his endless tales always had us on the edge of our seats. One thing for sure he put a smile on every face he encountered. Godspeed Uncle, JuJu is waiting. My condolences Aunt Sue, Jimmy Jay, Kathy, Uncle Richard, Auntie Phillys, and all the Shadyside extended family.

So sad to hear that Jim passed away. I graduated with Jim from SHS in 1956. I moved to Shadyside in 1955 so I knew him for only our Senior year. Jim was a friend to everyone and so well liked. I send my heartfelt sympathy to his family and pray God be with them and comfort them at this difficult time.

Conalco memories, Jim always kept us laughing at the plant, especially during our lunches. If Jim was around people were laughing. I always enjoyed being around him . He helped make the last few years with Ormet bearable. R.I.P. Jimmy

Jimmy was a very good employee during the years I had the pleasure to work with him in the finishing He was at the Shadyside Track in 1996 as Caldwell High was a participant and observed my son run and his comments were hilarious as he indicated that my son was as fast as a scalded dog My deepest sympathy to the family
