AussieJimG. RIP........
« on: September 29, 2015, 03:03:42 PM »
So very sad to hear on MEM. Jim has passed away!


I arranged for a meet up of Modders, at Harrogate show, a few years back.

He was first to arrive. Walked up to me, and said. "Hello David. I'm Jim Greethead, from Austraila. Very pleased to meet you".

I still have his calling card........

What a lovely man! What warm encouragement, I've had from him, during my orphan projects.

He will be missed. But leaves behind, a warm glow.

Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

I met Jim at Harrogate a few years ago.

He was a very amiable guy.

Sorry to hear of his demise.

RIP Jim.

Just read this, and what sad news. Jim was very encouraging when I started here on MM, very welcoming to all newcomers, often the first to reply to the announcement. I thought he'd grown more quiet lately and wondered if there were health issues. Just a real loss here. Of a kind spirit. Rest in peace, Jim. And Thank you.
I love it when a Plan B comes together!

Oh crap with so much happening here I had to take a step away from many a forum for a while, this is sad news Jim didn't live that far away about 10k but we never met although had planned to.

Condolences all round
