I was so shocked to read of Jim's death on Facebook today. Jim was a really nice guy and I always wanted to go out with him, but he wouldn't ask me out because he was very good friends with my brother, Truman Weatherly.
So sad to lose this man at such a young age. My heart goes out to Jim's family and friends.

I haven't seen Jim since high school, but he's one classmate I'll never forget. So sad to know he's gone. May God be your strength now. I do know the hole left in your life by his passing.

So very sorry to hear of your loss. I was blessed to work with Jim at Lockheed Martin for a very long while. At all times it was a delight, a vastly knowledgeable man with a terrific sense of humor.

When my cousin Roy was visiting I took him to Raytheon Aircraft services to see the planes Jim and I worked on.Jim was kind enough to put Roy in the pilot seat and show him how all the avionics worked. We had a great time that day. Thank you for the memories Jim.
