on vehicles for friends and family. Jimmy was a caring and dependable friend and brother. As a
teenager, he enjoyed water sports, particularly boat racing where he could often be found racing
his hydroplane or water skiing on the Town River. He enjoyed long motorcycle rides and
adventures with his brother, Bill. Jimmy also enjoyed holiday dinners and celebrations where he
liked to help with the cooking and preparation. He was the “official gravy stirrer.”
