Came upon this by accident. "Jimmy" and I went out a few times and decided to be friends. He took me to my first live concert, and as I recall he was some kind of music promoter. The concert was in Napa and Connie Stevens was the headliner. We went backstage and she told him how cute she thought he was. He was sweet and thoughtful even as a teenager. I am sorry to hear he has passed.
With sad hearts we are so sorry to hear about Jim's passing. We met the Hale and Simpson families on a cruise trip to Alaska in 1999. Years later we had dinner with them while in San Francisco. Although our time with Jim was brief, he was a very likable and a fun person to be with. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

My heart is truly saddened by Jim's passing. My sincere condolences to Jim's family and close family. Jim was truly the "Joke Master" at T.O.T.H. Toastmasters. May the peace of God, who IS the God of peace be upon Jim's family and close friends.
Have a suggestion for us?
