Per his wishes cremation has taken place.  A celebration of life is being planned for a later date and details will be announced as soon as they become available.  Let’s take this time to remember Jim for The professional bass fisherman he was, being a jokester, hitting every music note good or bad, and his moves on the dance floor.
