Jim was a wonderful man and what we had inscribed on his headstone at Ft Sam Houston National Cemetery is true and sums up the man: He loved his God, his country and his family. He fought for 2.5 years from the time of diagnosis to the end. It was a time that our family came closer together. The entire family was able to make some of Jim’s bucket list dreams come true. Jim loved golf and racing of all kinds. He raced go karts for 50+ years of his life. His oldest son took him to the Indianapolis 500. His middle son took him to the US Open golf tournament. While with his youngest son he visited England and Ireland. He is missed by family close and extended and by many friends. We all were inspired by how he faced this challenge with dignity and a positive attitude. We can think of no better tribute than to help raise awareness and funds to fight this scourge than through a run/walk. Jim was an avid runner most of his life from 5Ks to full marathons. He would be the first one to sign up for an event like this. Jim we miss you and love you and hope our small efforts can make a difference.
