Sorry for your loss. When your dad and me talked in our driveways many times I know he loved his family. He would talk about his wife and kids and grandson and I would talk about my granddauther. Loss my father in 1998 and I know what you are going through. Prayers for all your family. If you need anything please give me a call.

This breaks my heart to read. I was fortunate enough to work with Jim and for Jim at Cisco. He was a wonderful friend and mentor. I am truly a better person for having spent the time with him I did. He would light up when I would ask about his kids. We would spend probably more time than Cisco would like talking about each of them and what they were doing. He was immensely proud of each of them.
He was a true gentlemen and will be missed dearly.

Condolence from Dave McKay on June 29th, 2017 10:21 am

It’s heartbreaking to read this because Jim was so full of life and energy-giving to those that worked for him and with him. I worked for Jim in 2006-2007 and loved his spirit and attitude. He taught me a lot. He was famous for asking a sales prospect “Then what?”… over and over again until you had a real and true picture of why and how they would buy… and it was really a reflection of his thoroughness and positive energy. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was well-loved professionally and I’m sure even more personally, and he will be missed.

Dear PattyAnn, Alanna, Teresa , and John,

Bev and I were so sorry to hear about Jim. He was such a fun loving, friendly person. Always with a smile on his face and twinkle in his eye. Jim would always remind me that the smartest thing I ever did was marry an Irish women.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Love, Bev & Pete

Condolence from Maura & Kerry on June 30th, 2017 8:24 am

We were remembering a story about Jim. When we first moved to Banbury Woods about 20 yrs ago we would chat on the street often. He told us ” Now I leave for work early but don’t worry I go real slow and I turn my lights off at the top of the hill so they don’t shine into the house across the street.” That is what I remember about Jim. Always kind and thinking of others. A happy man who never had an unkind word to say. He was always smiling and those blue eyes flashing with mischief . He will be missed by many. Our deepest sympathies.
Love Maura & Kerry

Condolence from Tony on June 30th, 2017 2:29 pm

Condolence from Tammy Campbell on July 1st, 2017 10:15 am

Prayers and condolences to you Teresa and your family. I know what a special place your day held in your life and what an honorable man he was through stories you would share in conversation with “the girls”. May God grant you each comfort and peace~
