Jim was one of the good guys. We met at Liberty Grade School...Alpha seating in homerooms over the years would encourage conversation. In Junior High, we would walk to his house for lunch on 3rd Street on occasion. Jim set pins at the old Hobart Lanes, and a better bowler in Lake County would not be found. He was one of the good ones.....Sincere condolences to the family....Jeff Frame
