Jim was a great guy. My husband Jim worked for US Foodservice and had a medical issue and had an accident in his truck. After being treated at the hospital Mr. Ligori was asked to bring the semi back to Streator Jim was kind enough to let my Jim ride back to Streator with him in the wrecker. Jim and I never forgot that. Rest In Peace Jim and prayers to his wife and family
