I’m very sorry to read of Jim’s death. I went to school with Jim at Knollwood Park Public School in the 50’s. I remember playing hardball with Jim and Barry Wilkes and Bob was our coach. A great guy, quiet and unassuming and great to know him many years ago. Prayers and warm thoughts for all family and those who knew Jim. 🙏🏽🌞 John Langford
