I grew up on the White Oaks/Henderson Road part of town. Jim was a great pitcher in little league, American Legion and HS baseball. He was a fun loving young person who loved to plsy pranks on his unsuspecting teammates. I always enjoyed hanging out, talking sports... with Jim. I am sorry for your loss. Our prayers go out to you.
