Dear Maria and Family: I so sorry to hear that Jim passed away and wish to extend my sincerest sympathy for your loss. There are few things, if any, more difficult than saying good-bye to someone we have loved. I remember visiting the Dallas branch with Jim and Bob Hart for a K090 installation many years ago. Later that evening we had dinner at a wonderful restaurant and Jim ordered a salad and one dozen oysters. Not to be outdone, I ordered the same. To this day, every time I eat oysters, I think Jim because he taught me how to appreciate them. He will be missed. With my warmest regards, Ron Faria

Thank goodness he had you all to lean on. Knowing Jim from our time at Deere showed me his fun loving but caring personality and that is what I will remember him by. Warm Regards, Vee Michalik

Maria, I am so sorry for your loss. Jim was definitely one of a kind. I really admired him. I have spoken of him often with newer John Deere employees as an example of how things used to be and how we were able to build a system like DNS. Jim knew how to make a decision, and how to get things done. He was definitely someone special.
