Jim was toughest of athletes such a fierce competitor, hard and nails yet soft as smoke. Always a pleasure to be with kind and truly humorous. He was my teammate my predecessor at quarterback at West Liberty and a great friend for 50 years. God Bless him, Linda his entire family and many, many friends.
