  1. It is with sadness to learn of Jim’s passing.
    I first met him when he worked at Butternut, and intermittently there-after over the years; most often at the grocery store. Reconnecting with Jim was always a joy, and to see his face light up as he spoke about his love of family was priceless. What a wonderful man.
    May peace replace your heartache and happy memories remain.
    With condolences,
