Our condolences to all of Jim's family and friends. My father, Aldo Lorenzine, became a very good friend of Jim's during working with him at the Cadillac dealership. I remember Jim was always smiling and easy-going. When my father passed away, Jim wrote,  and spoke dad's eulogy at his funeral. My sisters and I remember their friendship fondly, and hope they find each other in heaven and are having a beer together again😉. God Bless, Jim,  Sharon (Lorenzine) & Bear Oehler

Although we were family only for a little while, I remember "Uncle Jimmy" fondly.  His passion for playing cards and Coors Beer.  He taught me how to play euchre and hearts in a kind, fun, and loving way.  It was just his nature.  However, divorce was a thief... I missed him terribly as a youngster.  I only saw him a couple of times after, but he was still just as pleasant and loving as ever towards me.  I cherish the gift of having known Jim. I was certainly blessed.  A piece of him has always been with me as I have a great fondness for family gatherings, cards, and beer.  I  have shed some tears over this loss for the second time in my life. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.  Pam Cline Masl, Stow Ohio.
