Jimmy has been such a great friend and brother in law. Always ready with a great big smile, a hug and helping hand. Constantly looking out for his family, his sons, Cam, Cody and Danny and of course his wife Nancy whom he dearly loved. He loved to laugh and make people laugh and really enjoyed it when they did. I was lucky enough to get to know him, go to Patriots and ball games with him. He taught me a lot, not just about carpentry and sports but how to be there in the moment with family and friends. Jimmy had so much love to give and did give it. I am going to miss his friendship and smiles. Rest in Peace my friend.

Im very sorry to hear about Jimmy. I was always fond of him, he had a great sense of humor! Although I havent seen him in years, the last time was at the baseball field with our 2 sons pitching against each other. Im truly saddened, he was way too young with so much life left. Please accept my deepest condolences, he was special. RIH Jimmy
