    Jimmy was the anchor of our trivia team. He always greeted us with a smile and was ready with a joke or two to keep us entertained throughout the evening. We will miss our teammate, our anchor and, most importantly, our friend.

    I didn’t find out about Jimmy’s passing until a few days later. I was stunned and thought that maybe this was someone else. I was so shocked that I had my wife read the obituary to confirm. This was a friend that I had played both golf and softball with for so many years. A friend that always had you’re back at both work and play. My wife looked at me and said “Bo, in the 13 years that I’ve known you, this is only the second time that I’ve seen you cry”. The first was when My mother died. Jimmy, you will be missed and loved by so many whose lives you both enriched and enlightened.
    Especially me,
