Dear Cynthia, My heart aches with you and your family over the loss of Mr. Brock. He saved me when he choose me to follow in his foot steps 1 year before his departure from Samsomatic in 1998. He was a fierce competitor when I was competing against him while I was a Modco Tools employee. Jim gave me a chance to better my career at his company. He left his mark in the Automotive Industry as one of the best in class people to work with. I missed my chance to thank him but will thank you and the Brock family for letting me be a small part of his circle of friends.

Jim was my great friend for nearly 40 years. I admired him so much especially the way he embraced life, relishing the good times and accepting the challenges, but always looking forward. He loved his good friends and family, particularly his soulmate, wife Cynthia. My wife Patty and I were so glad they got together. We are blessed to have been a part of Jim's journey. He will always be with us.
