I will always remember the good conversation and good laughs with Jim when he helped at the fish fryes. I will miss his humor and wit. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

The short time I knew Jim I enjoyed hearing about his life and how he and lisette met and lived. We had many good laughs I already miss his humor.

Roberts on Oct 10, 2018

Our deepest sympathies to Lisette and Jim’s whole family. We enjoyed getting to know Jim through RCIA, church and the Knights of Columbus. We always enjoyed our many conversations and always appreciated Jim’s help on the many projects on which we worked together. God Bless, Tim and Deb Roberts
