  1. Our condolences, so sorry for the loss of your dad. He was a great guy.

    THE McIntyre family

  2. I had the extreme pleasure to work alongside Jim in 018. He was always mild-mannered and dedicated to his profession, yet enjoyed some humor along the way. Thank you for your service as a United State Marine along with your friendship, “on da’ job” over the years. May the great God now invite you into His open arms for your ultimate, “Welcome Home.” Rest in peace our brother.

  3. Worked with Jimmy in 014 and 018 what a great guy , remember being at his 40th bday party.God bless this brave Marine and CPD officer

  4. May I extend sincere condolences to Jim’s family and friends in his passing.

    We recently heard of this via the recent passing of another alumnus (viz. Mike Burke) of St. Mel High School–class of 1969. There’s an indefinable comradeship among Melman which oddly endures among us. And as a fellow military veteran, I salute you, Jim. May you rest in peace.

Leave your condolences
