Jim and Linda and the family hold a special place in my heart. They were all so generous at Christmas time to my Faith Formation Program, Jim went out of his way to get food for our Food pantry when he went out East. Always a smile and what can we do to help! Deacon Ralph and I wish we could be with you all on Wednesday. We are still in AZ but our thoughts will be with you all. Jim was a true faithful servant and may he rest in peace and keep smiling for the Lord!

Jim and I both grew up in Western PA and have been associated since he worked for Norfolk Southern and I worked for Conrail . We were both inspectors and auditors who ended up working together for CRQS Inc. We would talk at 6 AM each morning to plan the day. I will miss him dearly. Our prayers and condolences go out to Kathryn, Linda and the entire family with this great loss.

This is Maggie from China. I appreciated that Jim trained me how to do AAR Audit in the Railway industry. Admired Jim with his determination, knowledge, humor and kindness when we worked together. A special note to Jim. Hi Jim, I still kept the Angel Coin you gave me, that's amazing, right? I knew you were worried about my safety. I pay more attention when I'm driving now in Italy now. I'm honored to know you and learn from you. Thanks Jim, R.I.P. May God bless you!

I have many many good memories of all the events and social time I spent with my very good friend Jim . I laughed , I cried I discussed sports like our beloved Pirates , Steelers and Notre Dame. But my greatest memories are the ones we spent together at family events in Nanty Glo . I always felt honored in being invited because I knew nothing was more important to him than family. I remember his big smiles and the joy that overflowed while honoring a family member. Jim’s children were the best and he glowed with pride talking about them. Jim taught me a lot about the railroad and castings but none was greater than what he taught me about family. Rest In Peace my good friend. God got a good one. Len
