70 years of knowing Jim and his family - particularly Artie and Junior. So many laughs - nobody could make me laugh like Jim. What a respected leader in all activities. Always knew he would be there to help you if you needed help. Great catcher in baseball, center in football ; all around player in basketball. Unforgettable 2 on 2 games with him against Gary Goodin and Don Piper - Biscoe Barn - summer 1954. A swim in the Orono pool and then back to basketball. Love to Carole and the family. Miss you, Jim.
