My whole family remembers Jim with great love and fondness. He was always a great friend (Judy Andrews Portmann and Pete Portmann) and such a source of support and comfort when we lost my father 20 years ago! So sorry for your loss at this time. He was literally one of the best human beings I ever encountered. May God hold you in the palm of his hand, Jim, and bring you to rest with the angels. I know we will all feel your presence at times and hear that distinctly gentle voice of yours. I hope you and my Dad can build something and have some great conversations wherever you are...

Dearest Vickie, Melissa and Family: Please accept our love and prayers of comfort and support. It was an honor to know Jim and share our many cherished conversations of friendship with him and Vickie. It all began during his early sailing days, probably 25+/- years ago, at Skip Jack Marina. Jim's sailboat was two slips away and one evening he was sitting in the boat all by himself. We invited him over to share time with him and we were so fortunate, as this was the start of an enduring relationship. Later he came with a lovely lady Vickie, who fortunately for Jim, was later to become his wife. What a joyous couple that were and we shared many good boating times together. Such a joy to have both of them as friends. Jim's demeanor was one of a strong "Teddy Bear". Always so gracious, caring and and with such warm smile has he always greeted us, as we are sure he always did with everyone he ever met.
