This is for Jim’s family. Jim you were the best and the most strict music teacher I ever had. You could only be compared to a drill instructor for the bass guitar! also you had a good heart and took me to my first concert when i was 15! To this very day I teach exactly how you taught me using the same book you wrote out by hand for me. Thank you for all the memories !! All my blessings to the rest of Jim’s family in your time of sorrow.

Jim, you were my favorite brother-in-law! Music was such a big part of you, and I have very fond memories of the early years of Rufus playing the Ground Round circuit. I am so sad you have been taken from us too soon, but I know that you are now at peace.

Fondly remembering James and his family from Maryvale times. It was a great place to learn and grow. Music helped make for a wonderful, rich community. My deepest sympathy to Jim’s family on his loss.

Uncle Jim,
You were an awesome guy! You motivated me more than you probably knew to learn all I could and continue to learn about music. The few times we got to jam together taught so much. And when I was having a hard time a couple years ago your words of encouragement helped me a lot. Thank You

Danny, Joann & Doris, I’m very sorry for you loss. Uncle Jim was an amazing person. I was always very excited at the opportunity to see or talk to him. His ability to joke around and laugh while at the same time carry a conversation that reflected his intelligence was unique. Sorry I can’t attend the services. I miss you guys.

Dear Cousin, you've left us too soon! Blessings to your loved ones left behind. You will be fondly remembered by me and the rest of the Pauza family.

Jim,
I enjoyed all the years we worked together at the plant. Your job wasn't easy but you were good at it. You will be missed.

I had the honor of working with Jim at the Cinnaminson, NJ plant for many years. He was very knowledgeable about his job and when I worked with him I knew we could solve the problems. He had a wicked sense of humor … a very dry wit. I will think of him often and will miss him very much.

Dear family, I just heard about the passing of our cousin, Jim! We had wonderful times as children…visiting in Philly…and then conversations now and again. You were so kind to us when mom died…calling and offering sympathy. JIm was especially thoughtful. May he know the peace and blessing in God’s great embrace. Love, Sister Mary Theresa. Aka Cousin Cathy
