Gentleman Jim was a special person to me. Any opportunity I had to spent time with I did. I loved every bar stool story from the "Sewer Man" and "This 1 time on the Waterfront"
I'm glad He's not in pain anymore.
He will be greatly missed by many.

Jim was a great story teller. He had a sense of humor like no other. Jim would make you smile, he would make you laugh. My nickname for Jim was "Joe Paloka"; he called me "Carl the carrot" It is my joy to have known Jim. He will live on in our memories. Carl & Diane Gromada

What a great friend and gentle person. Always "Mr. Fix It" who came to our rescue with ladder and drill in hand. We will miss all your stories about family, life on the docks, and your many life experiences, your company and soft spoken sense of humor. Miss you buddy. Tom & Pat DeKarski
