My prayers and deepest sympathy to the family. I first met Jim long time ago when he was a cop. Never could figure out the nickname stinky. Seen him up and down the road a lot in his golf cart. Always waved and smiled.

Rest in Peace Jim

I cherish beautiful memories of Stinky at all of the Czech dances. He was a very dear friend to my parents (Frank & Helen Vajdik) and I wish to extend my condolences to Todd and to all of Jim's family at this difficult time of their loss. He will always be remembered as a wonderful, smiling man! Until we meet again!
