I grew up with jimbo at the age of 11-12 on Isle of Armstrong. So many childhood memories of spending weekends at the Zeigler farm hunting dove and squirrel with Grandpa Zeigler and George Jr so many many years ago, rode go carts and built and flew model airplanes together.Lost touch with jimbo over the years as we grew older but the memories growing up with a childhood friend like jimbo will last forever. RIP my old friend.

Erv and Aunt Martha, We are so sadden by the loss of your son and my cousin Jimbo. It is good that he is in a better place now and no longer suffering with all that pain. We are really going to miss stopping by the Island and visiting with him and Lisa. We always looked forward to our yearly phone call at Christmas to see how all were doing. We will put you in our prayers. Love Ron and Chris
