Throughout his illness, Jim was one of the most positive people you could meet. it was always a case of "things are coming good" For 50 plus years I was proud to have Jim as a friend and we enjoyed many good times and the 'occasional' beer.

Feeling sad at the loss of another Old Mate. We had many good times since we were teenagers. Fond memories of driving up to Tailem Bend each week after work to catch up with Jim for a drink whilst he was posted there with Telecom, or was it still the PMG then. Sorry I am unable to be at the Funeral today due to my health but I did make it to your Wedding 42 years ago as your Best Man, something that's hard to forget... 2.5 hour service then the Reception Speech followed by the Priest trying to recruit me to the Choir because of my speech delivery. Condolences to Anthea and Timothy, Laura and new Baby.

You were an amazing human who taught me so much about aspiring to being just that. You made a huge contribution to my kids development and so many hours of your time and energy were dedicated to this. I will miss you, we will miss you. I hope you realise that the little kid in me appreciated you immensely, thank you.
