"Dam the torpedoes, full speed ahead!"
James didn't play a boring game of holding and waiting.
It was advance, attack, fire, and assault, throwing caution to the wind.
James said that he had as much fun running a game as he did playing in a game.
James was a good friend and a great host for wargaming.
Once a week we would go to James's house to play wargames.
My boys could play computer ...
I read your wargaming messages and joined in online conversation with you. Although we lived thousands of miles apart, you seemed like the sort of person it would have been good to meet.
I still have lots of very fond memories of when we were kids, Jim, the sleepovers, & playing Risk & Stratego, & listening to your Orson Wells "War of the World" record (or whichever new one you popped up with at the time). I'll always remember those days and I'll always remember you. You're already very missed. - Butch / Conrad
WOW, I am very sorry to hear that James has left us. While we did not know each other very well, he helped me on a number of projects and was always eager to assist with rules additions, alternatives, & innovations. James embodied the unsung few in this wargaming hobby who share, care, and give exhaustingly...he will be sorely missed. My condolences to his wife and family. James was a good ...
I will never forget how you would start out telling me about a book, get me interested in reading it and then tell me the end of it. I think you could quote a
book word for word sometimes. Thank you for your
generosity and friendship. I will miss you.
James, you will be missed!
Even your odd quirky wargames. Who will forget the Seekrieg games of outdated fleets against each other? I won't, rest in peace my friend.
James - remember the huge sand dune at Ft. Stevens? You always had such long legs and could bound up that hill. I, the little sister, thought that hill was so high - I could never reach the top. It was fun digging in the sand with you. I love you.
Big brother, I love you. Your death has been such a shock to all of us. Seeing you on Sunday, I knew that you were not feeling well but you assured me you were fine.
We both danced to different orchestras but you always accepted me and loved me. I love you.
