I am so sorry to learn that Jimmy has passed. Earlier this month I visited with him in CVS in Dover, and it was the first I had seen Jim in years. Please accept my condolences.

I only just learned of Jim's passing. As kids, we spent so much time together: fishing, building tree houses, playing baseball, building hay forts, skating, and all other kinds of stuff kids do living in the country. I will never forget the great times; we were like peas in a pod. After our childhood, we took different paths in life's journey, but I can't imagine making it through adolescence without Jim as my good friend. Rest In Peace to one of the world's terrific guys. You will be missed.

I’m grateful for having such a great uncle. I remember Uncle Jim always driving a cool car, truck or SUV (Chevy or GMC), early to rise, his hunting trophies on the wall, great dogs (Timujin, Brumby and others), always a welcoming “hello” when staying over in Amenia. We got to visit in January and he still had that spark of life and openness that makes you feel a part of the team. May we all meet again in the arms of Jesus. God’s peace and comfort to Terri, Jamie, and everyone who knew and loved Uncle Jim!

Our deepest sympathies to the Petkovich family. Jim was a member at A Undermountain Golf Course for many many years. He will always be remembered for his fun loving sense of humor. You will be missed Jimmy.

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember growing up across the road. Your whole family was always good to my mother and me. I remember your dad climbing a tree in your backyard to get one of our cats. I remember King one of the best dogs ever and I remember your grandmother. I remember going trick or treating with you guys after my dad died. Thank you for everything and I am again so sorry for your loss. Carolyn Butler Brezinski
