Jim and I worked together many years at Sikorsky aircraft, so we ate together at times, he was fond of kippers and anchovies and would bring tins of them with crackers to eat, he would have the lunch area smelling like fish and would laugh if we complained! He and I would fish a lot together especially after retirement, both in ct and vt. We shared many times with him and Dot and later Earla at our family camp in Vermont. Jim was fun loving, ready to tease although he didn’t like to be teased. All through our years as friends we also shared a favorite drink we had. “Manhattan”, I believe he was the person who got me to enjoy one! His love was flying radio control airplanes and usually had one with him if the occasion presented It! A true friend and companion over the years will be missed by my family as they all knew and loved him. Rest In Peace my good friend!

Uncle Jim was a generous, kind-hearted soul. His wit, deep knowledge, humorous stories and all around good humor added so much to our daily lives. We are so deeply saddened by this loss. We loved him like a father and a grandfather. Rest In Peace Uncle Jim. We Love You! Michael, Vikki, Justin and Haley LeMoine
