I worked with Jimmie during our Raytheon years -- 1972 to 1975. He taught me to shoot in Houston, and we learned to ski in Minneapolis. We were inseparable and never laughed so hard during that period in our lives. He was one of the most kind and caring individuals that I've ever known.
We met about 10 years ago in Jasper, IN. I was visiting relatives in French Lick. He drove up and I drove down for the meeting. We talked for over five hours and it passed like 10 minutes reliving the "old times". He still had that infectious smile that still showed in the obit photograph.
He left this earth way too early -- he was truly one of the good guys.
I will truly miss talking with you and I have great rememberances of the years we worked together at BREC Wlson Station. You and i became close and dear friends.
We had so many things in common with similar experiences in life. I will see you again some day if our God wills it.
