Jim left behind many dear friends in the Caledonia-Mumford area and beyond too numerous to mention. The family is grateful for the good care Jim received from Dr. Mohamedtaki A. Tejani and his team and all of the staff and volunteers at Wilmot Cancer Center. The family is also grateful for the in-home hospice care Jim received from Lifetime Care. Jim was born in Windber, PA.
