I will miss seeing Jim walk into Vicks Bar. We sat and talked about his many stories that he loved to share. Sometimes he would share pictures or newspaper articles that he carried along with him. Jim was such a humble and loving soul who loved to be around people. His smile, laugh and clapping his hands everytime we played the jukebox I will always remember. He'll greatly be missed and I'm am proud to have been his friend. RIP Jim ♥️

I only knew James from one phone call I made to him from Gundersen to check on him. I talked with him about his time he served in Germany and was a POW. I wrote down what he was telling me, it was so interesting. What a hero he was! I sent him a card, but not sure if it got to him in time for him to read it. I only found out of his death today when I was going to give him another call, just to say hello. I'm so sorry I never met him in person. He left a legacy for sure. He also told me about his marriages and secret to a long life. He said just being happy, loving people ad life and loving nature. I will always remember our conversation. It had great impact on me.
