Wanda, Julie, Bob So sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. May the lord comfort you in this very sad time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I will remember May 28,1958 at 3:30 pm forever that was my first day at Square D 2nd shift Jimmy was the first coworker I meet that day and at 1.33 an hour was great first job I had, working on the paint line. Have been lifetime friend's and always keep in contact with each other Jimmy was 3 years older than me and much more mature than me helped me to be successful at Square D until we both retired. helped an awful lot of people with anything that needed to be repaired or anything else that he could do for anyone. Wonderful human being. So sorry we could not see one another in person for the last several months. If any of you need me for anything, please let me know.

To Wanda Lyons & Family ! So sad to read of Jim's death ! Jim & I swapped rides to work at Sq D 2nd shift starting in 1959. I had a '53 Ford & he bought a New 1959 Ford & we rode like kings at his turn. Jim always kept his car spotless just like it came off of the assembly line. Jim was hard worker, a good friend, & Great Family Man. Unfortunately, lost contact after I got a job at UWS ( a Hoover & later a JCI company ) at Georgetown in April 1961. Lost Edith, my wife, in 2015. God Bless, Comfort, Heal, and Protect All of James Lyons Family & Friends. ! ! ! Robert W. 'Bob' Stamper rws@twc.com 40505-3422
