    Sorry to here this news but I know Jim has been suffering. He was a working companion at UPRR and a very good friend of mine. A very smart man.

    My sincere condolences. Jim and I worked together and battled each other during the design and implementation of the Missouri Pacific’s Car Scheduling system. He was dedicated to his profession and to the railroad. I am very sorry to hear he as passed.

    Jim and our husband and father, Doug, worked together in the scouting program for many years. We are very sorry to hear of his passing and know that he suffered a great deal these past years. He was a wonderful person and highly respected by the scouts and adults in the program. On behalf of the Gries family, please accept our condolences and prayers.

    So sorry to hear. My deepest sympathy to all family and friends. I hired Jim at the Missouri Pacific Railroad. Jim and I worked together for many years. He was always a very intelligent and committed employee and contributed greatly to the success of the Missouri Pacific and then the Union Pacific Railroad. Also, Jim and I had a very spirited and competitive relationship on the tennis court. We played many, many times when he was in St. Louis.Such a great guy!!! He will be missed by many.

    I met Jim at The University of Texas and we kept in touch after graduation through his years at McDonnell-Douglas. He was a trusted friend. I was fortunate to talk to him again after a long lapse and I was truly touched by our last conversation. God Speed…
