I met Jim when he worked at CMP Yacht Sales and I called on them for client referrals. Jim made me feel like old friend right from the start. He had that way about him. I so enjoyed visiting with Jim and hearing stories about his offshore racing days. He truly will be missed! My sincerest sympathies to his family.

Gayle and JP-
I just saw Jim's obit in the Fond du lac paper. I am so sorry for your loss and for JP's loss of his father. It was such a gift that JP had his father as long as he did, but it is never long enough that a loved one is in our life. I am so sorry for your and JP's sadness and grief. Gayle, I am retired and living back in Fond du lac now and think of you and your family often. My condolences to you all.

Gayle and Jim introduced Bonny and me to CW BBQ a few years back.
We have become addicted to the place and will always remember Jim every time we eat there.
Over the past 4 years Jim would include me in almost every event thet came along. I know he always enjoyed our Airshow party and came up to Stuart to attend each year. We will miss him and his memory will continue forever.
