    Jimmy “Kob” had a wicked sense of humor and the fastest comeback around. Whenever I felt down I could call Jimmy and I would feel better by the time we hung up. He also had a vault in his head filled with all kinds of trivia. I could ask him about anything and was always amazed that he knew the answer. I miss Jimmy everyday and talk to him often. I just know one of these days he is going to answer me. If any one can, “Kob” can. Rest in peace my brother and friend. I love you lots. Peggy

    My heart is sad to hear about Jimmy’s passing. I have many fond memories of my younger days spent with the gang in the garage. Always a lot of laughter and fun. I had the opportunity to visit with him last year and brought the photo I took of the “cross” over the garage – that put a smile on his face. We talked about old times, old friends, concerts we attended (so many) and about his illness. I will miss our Christmas card exchange. 40+ years. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, Peggy, Becky, Norm, Bev & Phillip and your families. He will be missed.

He was one of my Brother Ricks best Friends and also my Sister Suzy, especially lately. I had sent Him a letter 2 years or so ago, when I heard He was sick, and talked ole’ times to Him, and how much We were All like one big happy Family from Lakeside. Jimmy-You will be missed. Such a great Guy! Love and hugs to the Family..

    Jimmy was not only my brother, he was also my best friend. When I would go down and see him, we would spend hours on the front porch talking about the old times. His one liners always made me laugh, he always had one for everything. I will greatly miss him and I hope he rests in peace.

    Jimmy was a good guy. Always had a smile. He helped my dad and was a good friend to he and I for a long time. Our family enjoyed his company.
