I was so sorry and saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I worked with Jim at API and he was terrific to work with. He could fix anything and always had a great idea to solve any problem. Matter of fact I think of Jim everyday I pass though my door as he custom machined a new door threshold for me when my old one rotted out! He was such a good guy. He will be missed.
