Jim was my field mapping party chief in Maine in 1972. I had just gotten out of the army. Years later - in the Reston office - I was his team leader. I was always impressed with his intelligence, common sense and strong work ethic. He was a great inspiration to me in my early career.

Such a sweet soul. He used to come into Bello's for breakfast, and always had a smile on his face. He will definitely be missed. RIP Jim
