    Rest in peace Jimmy. I remember when I started working at Disney as a frightened young apprentice painter back in 1981, Jim was so kind to me. I worked with him in his shop, and in that time, he amazed me with his knowledge of the trade! I used to tell him that he had forgotten more about paint than I would ever know! The best spray man I've ever known. Also a kind, generous and funny man. He had a million stories! I will never forget you....
