We known him as Mr. Jim. He was always smiling and picking up cans. I had recently shared a story about him to my son shortly before the news of his death. I told my son I've known that "Mr. Jim " has always pick up cans ;that over 35 years. I was please to see that at his age he look well. He will be missed. RIP Mr. Jim

Jim was always very kind and always spoke when he saw me. He helped mother when he would see her working in the yard he would stop and help. He will be missed.

I hated to hear the news about Mr. Jim. He worked with my dad many years ago when i was a child; i remember his and his collection of cans. My Dad often stopped to talk to him when he saw him collecting cans.
I have a good memory of Mr. Jim. God bless you all with wonderful memories during this time.
