I'm so sorry to hear about Jim's death. He was a great man. I'd enjoyed talking to Jim about friends we knew together and his great love for his granddaughters. He will truly be missed. Prayers for Jim and his family.

Monika and i enjoyed our relationship with Pattons Towing for many years at Phase 1 Coachworks in Tinley Park.
Jim was always a professional to deal with our towing needs. I had recently recieved a photo of him at Oshkosh Air Show. Sorry we will not be able to attend services as we are now in Daytona Beach Florida.
Our hearts go out to all his friends and especially family members. Rest in peace Jim. I will catch up with you later.
Jack Ditmars.
