    I had the privilege of working with Jim and then assuming his position at City of West Sacramento Public Works Department after his retirement. It was a privilege to carry on his legacy and call him my friend . He was adored and respected by the City he took care of for 40 years. Peace and rest with the Lord my friend.

    My heart is broken. I first met Jim in 1971 when he and my husband Mike Smith, affectionately know to Jim as β€œCrid”, worked together at Washington Water & Light, Citizens Utilities, EYCSD, and The City of West Sacramento. Mike and Jim hit it off from the beginning and remained friends until Mike preceded Jim in death 7/15/2016. Jim was a great man, loved and respected by many, he will be dearly missed. May God bless his final journey and reunite him with his loved ones in his heavenly home. Love you Jim, R.I.P., Glenda Smith πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ
