My condolences to Jim’s family. Jim took care of all of our vehicles for many years and was always willing to assist in any way he could even to delivering to our home when necessary. I remember, too, how proud he was of his grandchildren. May special memories bring you peace.

My condolences to Jim’s family. I met Jim when we both worked for the telephone company. I remember him as a “get it done” type guy. In Manteo, conventional ways of construction would not always work, but Jim found a way. Although he was not bashful about his opinions, you couldn’t help but like him. He was the right person for that job at that time and the telephone company was better off for having him there. Had lost touch with him over the years but have fond memories.
God Bless!
