October 27, 1940 - May 28, 2018.
Limited details are available. A death notice / obituary appeared in spring of 2018 published by the Allen-Beyer Funeral Home. The notice had few details and simply stated that Jim had died at Key Largo, Florida.
Jim held Coast Guard Aviator number 1363. He spent several years flying the Grumman HU-16 "Albatross" and he once told me he was particularly fond of the Fairchild C-123B.
