August 11, 1936 – December 8, 2008 (Deceased)
Jim, as he was called by all of us, was a much better boxer than he let on. Even though he felt his boxing was not adequate, his leadership and love and knowledge for the sport of boxing are as great as anyone inducted. Under his leadership as Chairman on the Carolinas’ Hall of Fame for a number of years, he touched many lives to the better. He will always be in our hearts.
