   Jim, HFD #62, retired from the City of Harrisburg Fire Department. He also volunteered for a time for Camp Hill Fire Department. He was an avid golfer. He enjoyed family time, especially time with "the kids". He made every Christmas special for his daughters.  He was always there for his wife and she for him through their 67 years of marriage. He had a good and generous heart. His family will always miss and love him. We treasure the good times and the love we shared with him.

I practically grew up at his home. He was always so loving and sweet to all of us girls. He was very instrumental when my brother,David joined the fire department. He never said a bad word about anyone. He was very much loved by all. I will cherish him,and his family always.


Jim & I only worked together
a few times when either did
relief, over time or such changes
as I was B Platoon. It was always
pleasure. My most sincere sympathy
for your loss
God Bless you all.
