Uncle Jimmy was a very kind, loving and giving man of his time and many talents to anyone who asked. His personal touch on our homes are evident when you walk in and you see either draperies he made, furniture that had been reupholstered by him, or the beautiful quilts he created. He was a true master with a needle and thread. He was our historian with the great stories he handed down to us of times gone by, always with a smile on his face. He so loved celebrating with his family and his family will always celebrate him. He truly was one of a kind and will be missed greatly.
Cremation rites were accorded and will be interned at Cedar Park Cemetery in Calumet Park, IL at a later date.
