I am a Fergus Falls, MN High School friend. Jim was an excellent string instrument player. My date and I doubled with him and his date to the Junior Prom and the picnic the next day. It was a lot of fun. My sympathy to Jim's children.

Hello Carter Family , I just read the obituary for Jimmy. He was a great guy and I always enjoyed his company. Even though we hadnt seen each other in years I thought of him many times. I know he really loved his family and will be missed. Sincerely ,Mark Brislawn

My deepest sympathies....
My husband worked with Jim for several years out at PWT, they were not only co-workers but friends too. Jim generously shared his beach home with us, enabling us to create lots of wonderful memories-
