Uncle Jim was like a second father to me. He was always trying to make us laugh and made sure that 4th of July was never boring. He was sure to let everyone know at Thanksgiving, Christmas and all other family dinners, that he had spent the whole day in the kitchen preparing the meal, which always got a chuckle. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood that included Uncle Jim and so sorry for his family’s loss. Right now I can imagine a tear running down Buck’s cheek!

My sympathy goes out to his children and grandchildren and siblings and family. Mr. Brubach was my World History teacher in Mt. Pleasant, Ohio. He was a very tough teacher, but, you learned your history with him. I liked him alot. Later, I got to wait on him at the bank in Bridgeport. I shared how much I appreciated him as my teacher.
