I am shocked and saddened hearing of Jim's passing. I hold many fond memories of comradeship in years past. We shared many fine dining and artistic events in Toronto in the late 80's and early 90's as well as some odd adventures with both Jim and Rick in their university days. I know he had a deep love of his family, my condolences to them on their loss.
Jim was one of the smartest cookies I've known.
I can treasure all 29 years , 1 month and 19 days that I knew him.
He had a way of seeing through the issues with brilliantly simple solutions.
We could talk about anything and that was fun.
I'll miss him dearly.
Jim was an inspiration to everyone that met him. I had the pleasure of knowing Jim through work, and consider my life richer for having known him. His joy for life and infectious laugh are two things that I will remember about him.
Jim was a great inspiration professionally and personally. I always admired Jim's technical skill but over the past few years I had the opportunity to see what a great person he was as well. I'm grateful to have known him and will miss the great wide ranging discussions we had about life.
I had the pleasure of knowing Jim for over 30 years. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. Rest in Peace Jim
