Wow Jim;

Another Falcon I find difficult to aknowledge that is gone from our company. Very tough to see that so many are gone.

Who could count the great times we had at JHS and around the bases. I was startled to hear of your passing, so many years ago now. It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting by your bed as you recovered from a motorcycycle accident...  Off base, somewhere...

I envied you your quiet self assuarance, atheletic ability and inteliigence. Where I felt I had to work hard at those things, you seemed to come by them naturally and wore them with grace. I hope we will find each other again some day. Maybe we can chat on the quad during the mods once again.

Forever your brother,

Ray '72

I mostly remember Jim from our eighth grade class at Johnson Middle School. He was handsome and smart. So sorry to hear of his passing.

Jim joined the Clark County Fire Dept. in Las Vegas, NV and was injured in the 1980 MGM Grand fire. He was one of the first to arrive at the scene with his unit.  His injuries during this incident ended his career as a firefighter.   Jim is missed by all of his friends in the department and by those that knew him over the years.
