    We are so sorry to hear about Jim. When we were active in the Cornhusker Chapter, we really enjoyed Jim and had many good times with him. He was a fun individual and a true gentleman, one of the good guys. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you.

    My most sincere condolences to his loved ones. Jim was a collecting friend of mine for over 40 years. He was always-even recently-cheerful and good natured. He will be missed

    Jim stood up for us when we got married in 1991 near Cornucopia WI, where we shared many good times with Jim over many beautiful, Northwoods summers. Jim never forgot our anniversary. We’ll never forget him. He truly was a gentleman in every sense of the word. Our deepest sympathy to his family and to everyone who loved him, in Omaha, in Cornucopia and beyond.
