    I’m a good friend of Jim’s. I visited a couple of times at the hospice. Tonight I went with a couple of friends and learned of his passing. Actually I was going to ask his advice on some motorcycles I was looking at buying. We always talked bikes and cars and music, he was on the same page as me in a lot of things. He will be missed.

    I met Jim at Outside The Lines Studio, where he volunteered and took classes when I was working there. I met up with him a few times after I left but lost touch after shortly before or around the pandemic. Glad to be the owner of one of his paintings and sorry to not be able to catch up with him once more to ask him for more details of some of his fascinating stories, of which he had many. I’m so blessed to have met and known him. My condolences to all his family and friends.
