Like many others I will miss Jim greatly. W8QLR was one of those very affable people that everyone liked to talk with. Jim represented the very best of amateur radio, he was a true gentlemen.

I also was stunned beyond words when I found out that The Judge, K8QLR had died. The Voice, The Stories; a very nice man. He was always nice to me. 3976 will never be the same. 73 and farewell to you Sir. -Chuck K8CPA
