I worked with Jim @ United Telephone back in the 1970’s. He was a joyous person to be around and a mentor to me in our craft. He was a joy to be around and we are sorry for his passing but glad we will see him again some day in heaven. God bless his family.

Although we only kept in touch through Christmas cards, he was always the "cool' uncle. Love and miss you "Uncle Bobb T. Slobb"!
