    Jim spent a lot of time at our house when he was a young teenager, along with a group of kids who frequented our home. He would ride his bike over from his home on West Wabash Street and stay and play cards or just joke around and cut up with the gang. Then about midnight, he would be afraid to go home, so my Mom would have him load his bike into the back of the Walters’ Welding truck and take him home. We had so many good times back then. Sorry for your loss. He was a good man.

    My condolences to all of Jim’s family. I grew up with Jim and thought the world of him. We grew apart in later years but I always knew that he was a great guy. I will miss him.

    To the Howe Family
    Sorry for your loss Jim was a good guy and will be sadly missed by many. Jimmy and I had lots of fun up at your place on the river. I appreciate everything you did for me. I ran into Jim and Spike in fishing sots I thought only I knew. RIP
