    Jimmy was a member of the Chance-Loeb 9th grade graduating class of 1962 and the 1965 graduating class of Silsbee High School, of which I was also a fellow graduate (in fact, our pictures are right next to each other in our school albums). I don't believe we ever saw each other after graduation, but it appears he went on to a rewarding life after graduation. I am proud of him and his accomplishments. My sincerest condolences on your loss and I will try to let others of our class know of his passing. I only read about his death in the Silsbee Bee after his funeral. R.I.P. Jimmy
