My thoughts and prayers for Jim's wonderful wife and his children and grandchildren. I am greatly saddened by his passing. All of my best Geri.

David Wolfe, Swartz Creek, MI

Dear Gerry and family. We just learned about Jim. May God bless and give you strength as you, and the family, grieve. You have been in our thoughts ever since we were neighbors in Bainbrook. Jim will be greatly missed but he leaves many beautiful memories.

Nick & Carol Timcisko, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

Jim was always a positive influence to those who worked for him at GE. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him. My condolences to his family. Bill

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gerry and their daughters. I met Jim when we both moved to work in Louisville in 1991 and then in Alpharetta. He was hard working, level-headed and compassionate with the drive to do things correctly and with fairness. He was the person I would go to for advice on critical decisions. He often spoke of his family and looked forward to the annual vacations with his daughters and their families. Jim

Jim Kretzmer, Indian Land,

Sincere condolences to Jim's entire family. We went to Swartz Creek school together. I always remember him as being one of the most pleasant and friendly students in school. A smile and nod as we passed in the halls was his norm. Many blessings as you enter your new norm in your Heavenly Home!

Hi Gerry, I am so sorry to hear the news and wish you and your family my best in this time of sorrow.At times like this I try to remind myself of all the good times and they number many for me with Jim that include regular lunches, long conversations about your family and your wonderful vacations, our trips to The Masters, Jim's retirement dinner and the night you both hosted me for dinner at your house. I was am am happy to have had Jim as a friend. I know you have a large and wonderful family but please don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of any help.
