    I remember Jimmy “Fass” well from our old days at the West Chester YMCA. He was older than most of us so was a leader in all the activities. As I recall he was liked & respected by everyone. He was also extremely talented physically and could do whatever he set his mind to. After we all graduated from Henderson High School I lost track of most of the old “Y” guys. I ended up marrying a girl from Jjimmy’s graduating class so I did see him once at a class reunion. I have nothing but great memories from those days and offer my sincerest condolences to his family.

    Jim and I joined the US Army on the “Buddy Plan” in 1962, we were together for basic training. After that we went different ways. He was a good friend and exceptional teammate. He will be missed by many,
    Love you Jim !!
