Jim, what a big heart he had! Red could make you laugh and make a crowd smile just being in the room. So glad I had a chance to spend that last moment with you, enjoying your great sense of humour and hug at CJ’s wedding. You are one of a kind and will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to cross your path. Karen Donnelly

My deepest condolences to Jim’s family. I knew Jim in grade school and later the ju jitsu club. I know he’ll be missed by all who knew him.
