my deepest sympathy to all of Jim's family. I worked with Jim when we were teenagers at the Hollywood Theatre in downtown Pottsville. Jim continued to work at the theatre even after he was working full time at Kane Steel on the Pottsville/Minersville Hwy. I remember Jim driving his prized 66 chevy super sport. Many years later after I had lost my husband and moved back to Pottsville from Reading I would talk with Jim and his wife at Grammas restaurant. I would also see Joanie come to and from work at the insurance office in the old Sears building when I lived there after returning to Pottsville. Of course I knew Jim and his sisters when we all went to Mary Queen of Peace school. I am sorry for Jim's entire family on their loss of a great person.
