A rare breed indeed! Jim answered when his country called in a time of its greatest need. A member of the Hall of Heroes of an age gone by. Jim answered once again when his country called. A rare breed indeed! Jim returned and settled down to raise a beautiful family…. Betty, Teresa, Dolores, and Eleanor and live the American dream in suburbia keeping an impeccable home. A model citizen and worker, Jim was a dedicated loyal member of the Westvaco family for 46 years missing only one day of work. A rare breed indeed! A quiet man with a rare wit. Always quick to ask how you are doing. Discuss football and politics. He had an opinion and was always ready to share it. Kind enough to make a new member of the family feel at home. Always ready to pitch in on a handyman task. Jim, I only knew you for these past 14 years but it was an honor to know you. You will be missed. A member of a rare breed of American Heroes! Love You Son-in-Law Jack
