You could often find Jimmy at the skating rink on Sunday evenings doing what no one else could do on skates, he was known for his cool easy glide on wheels. If you didn’t see him at the skating rink you certainly could find him at Blossom Lanes bowling alley throwing his wicked hook. He bowled on Wednesday Morning Mixed League and Saturdays with Jones & Co. Team. When he wasn’t at skating and bowling, he was on the softball field challenging pitchers to go against his lightning speed and runners against his slingshot arm. No matter where he was or what he was doing you could always catch him making jokes about something and talking about his family. Jimmy loved having fun he enjoyed life, in his past time he enjoyed watching movies, especially MARVELS, as he was a huge MARVEL comic fan, particularly BATMAN.
