Very sad to hear of Jim's passing. I spent a fun week with Jim at the White Mountains and some weekend trips to Thendara. Fun easy going guy. He will be missed. My condolences to his family.

It was a joy living next door to the Slovik family. Jim was always friendly and cordial. We had the pleasure of watching the girls grow up into charming adults. The care given to Jim by Ramona during his last days shows the compassion and commitment of his family. Ramona, Sofia and Giovanna, you are in our thoughts. Sue and Roger Eichlin

So sorry to hear of the passing of Jim. My sincere sympathies to his family. I had the pleasure and honor of working with Jim at El Centro, Ca. He was always pleasant, respectful of others and a hard, dedicated worker even under the hardest of circumstances.
