  1. My sincere condolences go to Jim’s family. There were three of us sharing a dormitory room freshman year at Williston. He will always be remembered

  2. We called him Petro in Memorial Dorm; and in a scene right out of the movie “Rounders”, Petro got me on the right track. Thanks. With that hair he must have been doing TV commercials which would link his smile to just receiving a residual check.
