Jim was known for and will be remembered by his sense of style, his intellect, his patience, a very dry sense of humor, and his calm and loving ways. Jim was a gourmet cook, loved to garden and his sports cars, the beauty of nature and spending time with family. Naturally, he was a four for four fan of Philadelphia’s sports franchises. He will be greatly missed.
