Jim had a big love of Italy.  I believe he did at least one, and probably more, bicycle tours of Italy and he was trying to learn the language.  He subscribed to an Italian newspaper to practice and learn the language.

I believe he was married twice and had a large extended family.  At least that's what it seemed from the family photo he sent me.                       

Jim and I were the halfbacks on the Bosco football team - I was RHB and Jim was LHB.  We often exchanged emails about the Seahawks and other things.  I'm glad he got to see the Seahawks win the Superbowl.  

Jim died from cancer.   Cancer is the #1 threat to all of us, so it is amazing that the CURRENT GOVERNMENT IS CUTTING BACK on cancer research funds.  Maybe Jim would still be alive if we were spending more money on cancer research.
