Jim, my partner, my LOVE, my best friend , for over 30 years I loved you, and never ever regretted not one year with you. You were my life. I honored you, respected you and was devoted my life to you, you were a wonderful stepdad to my children and a wonderful ,loving grandpa to my grandchildren. and now that you are gone, I don't know yet how to carry on, I have been trying so hard but you have been my life for so long... I miss you so very much. I reach out for you every night , but you're not there, I cry day and night, especially at night, and I know in time that will subside , and I wait for that time. It seems to get better when I think back and the wonderful times we shared, we did have a wonderful life together, Thank you for the memories my love. I will never forget you and until we meet again.... I will always love you. Yours forever, Linda

  When my Dad passed away when I was just 12 years old, I thought that no man could ever replace the void or fill the shoes of the great man who was my father. After many years of Pops being in my life, I learned not only to respect and look up to this man, but to love him with the same devotion I had for my Dad. Of course we had our ups and downs, but I learned a great deal from him about life, and the lessons it takes to become a man. I also had the privilege of him standing in for me as my father in both my weddings, and he was also there for me when all my kids were born. I will cherish always the memories when Marty and I spent many hours and long nights creating the interiors in his hot rods, as well as helping with other builds. He was truly a master at the craft of building the coolest, most unique street machines out there. Pops, you will truly be missed and thank you so much for being there for me, teaching me so much, and loving me in your own way. You will always be loved and remembered in my heart.

Hey Jim, you were definitely family for the last 31 years.  A Tuff, Rugged, and a determined man . I know you loved my sister Linda and I know you loved all her kids and grandkids cuz they were just as much yours too! I will always remember you as such a strong, positive, & fun loving guy and I will miss you for sure. I pray now for your loved ones left behind and for God to give strength and faith during these hard times. Take care and I will see you in a better place!

Jim entered into a large extended family when he met Linda, 31 years ago! Linda's four adult "kids" referred to him as "Pops." To their kids, he was "Papa Jim."  Going to Jim and Linda's house for parties was a regular occurrence over the years. We were always greeted with a hug. Now, we are greeted that same way by his son, Jace!  Jace knows how much we loved his father. He has extended much love and support to Linda.  Jim will be missed by many. He was a great, "brother in-law."

Papa was one of the great ones!! Tough as nails, brave as hell, and he had the ability to withstand difficulty and overcome it with grit and courage. This amazing man will be greatly missed! We love you papa... say hi to dad for us...

I had the great pleasure of knowing Jim and spending time with him at many car shows. He taught me many things about building a street rod that came in handy . I will always look up to his knowledge in life and the many things I learned from Jim, he will never be forgotten, REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND

I had great respect for Jim and his wisdom. He was a true iron man with his car and truck builds. He did all his own fabrication and mechanic work - a rare man. He could see right through people so you best be straight with him at all times. He always welcomed Maryanne and I and our family warmly into his home he very generous to us. I will miss him - honored to be his friend.
