I was saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I had the privilege of knowing and working with Jim for more than a decade at the VA medical center. I enjoyed the conversations with him in passing in the hallway. We shared a love of golf and the Marine Corp, and chatted about both often. Semper Fi, Jim! My deepest condolences to the family.
