My husband and I attended the Celebration of Life for Jimmy at the Carolina Raptor Center on Saturday, June 25, 2022.  It was truly a celebration of a life well lived.  Jimmy spent many years developing and supporting progams and encouraging young people at several YMCAs in South Charlotte before he moved to the Carolina Rapotor Center.  In addition to rescuing and rehabing raptors, he loved educating the public about rapotors and environmental issues.  He was instrumental in developing the Quest Center at Latta Nature Preserve in Huntersville.  Many of the young people that Jim mentored at the YMCA are community leaders today and several spoke during the celebration.   Arround 300 people attended the program and reception.  

Although I had not seen or talked to Jimmy since our days at East Gaston, our parents were good friends and we went on many adventures together with our mothers in our younger years.  It was good to hear about his amazing life and influence on so many people.  He will be greatly missed by his freinds and family and our class has lost another precious member.
