    Jim was our neighbor who lived across the street. He will certainly be missed as he was always there to help anyone in the neighborhood who needed assistance. For a couple of years Jim and I used to walk together for exercise in the evenings. I am also a Vietnam veteran and we used to talk about our time in-country that only Vietnam veterans would understand. He was a character and will certainly be missed around here. Condolences to Jim’s wife, daughters, and family.

    Miki, Kim and Trisha, I am so very sorry for the loss of Jim. I have many wonderful memories of when you lived in Kansas City, Mo. Jim and Miki were parents every child would love to have. Rest in Peace, Jim.

    Memories of my big brother, Marty Brittingham and Jim 1960’s, high school years. Jim was a year younger than Marty and his friends but he was one of “the gang” of good guys, Beatle haircuts, madras shirts and the 1960’s. Jim was a “character” always funny and good hearted. My brother Marty and Jim were close. Marty was killed in a car accident in August of 1966. I lost track of Jim. We did reconnected on Facebook in the last few years. Always something to talk about from good ole Nevada High School. Marty would have done anything for Jim and Jim the same for Marty. They were true friends. I am glad Jim had such a good life. He loved life, family, cars and kids. I see his spirit and my brother’s together now and at peace. God Bless
