Jim was one of my first “bosses” during my career during the Sanders Assoc, Lockheed Martin years, in South Nashua. He was direct and to the point..... no mixing words. He expected you to get the job done, and move into the next stack of Reqs. I appreciated his honesty.... something that is in today’s work environment frowned on and thought as being “insensitive“. We need more people like Jim.

I spent some 30 years or so at BAE in the Subcontracts Management area. Knew Jim thru our common relationship of "Procurement". The Jim I recall was a no-nonsense, no bull---- guy and he let it be known. Loved The Guy! God Bless my old friend and if they don't like it **********************
