Jim and I were friends for many years. I first met him in Dallas TX (Addison) about 1984. Jim was quick witted, and kind to a fault. I never knew one single person that ever had anything bad to say about him. He was well liked by his peers, and respected for his intellect, and never quit attitude. He had a dark sense of humor at work that was seldom rivaled in his unique dry delivery. Typically his opening line was: Look here Loser, then the lambasting and verbal beating would continue until morale improved, LITERALLY. He could make the worst thing seem bearable if not outright funny. I never knew him to complain, or shirk, he worked 36hr shifts on disasters and service outages without rest, in the worst weather you can imagine. He worked hard and played hard. I moved to WA. state and worked with him there, again he was well liked and a top flight technician. He worked with Terry Avery performing the wizardry/art of power influence, and noise mitigation. Something most telephone people didn't know existed, and many power company employees didn't fully understand. He attended the World power influence seminar in Oshkosh WI. Jim was one of the few people in the world that understood and practiced what they taught there. He was my friend and confidante, I loved him as a brother. That will continue to be the case until I can see him again. I give my condolences to his family and friends. I know they will miss him as I already do. God bless you one and all, we were fortunate to have called him family, or friend. Jim may you rest in peace until the day we meet again. Thank you for the friendship and good times, Ray Paulk
