I had not seen or talked to Jim since the 60's and early 70's, but I remember a great guy that liked to have a good time. There are many happy memories of the crazy stuff we did. May you find comfort in the memories you have with Jim and the prayers that are being sent your way.

We are so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Jim had been a family friend for years of the Tobolski family. Jim had a great sense of humor and made us all laugh. Jim and I will always remember the fun times and the joking around he did with his finger. There was never a dull moment when Jim was around. My mother was very fond of Jim and of his mother as well. We all had some great time at LaSalle and Jim was right there in the middle of it all.
Rest in peace Jim, and know that you will be greatly missed.

Cheryl (Tobolski) and Jim Nowicki
