To Jim's family, my heartfelt sympathies.  I was a south sider (Steator) like Jim and a high school classmate.  I was always the youngest in class until high school, Jim's birthday was the day after mine and made him the youngest.  I haven't seen Jim for a long time, but my memories are of a good, amicable person, great pitcher, great sense of humor, with whom I shared much laughter and many good times.

Again, I am very sorrowful for your loss and will treasure my memories of Jim as a  classmate, teammate and friend.
