  1. Such sad news about James’ passing. I got to know him through Denise and we would meet at a local park and talk. He was wonderfully creative and I always admired his photography and art. Prayers for his soul and strength to Denise and the family who will miss his enthusiasm for life that was always one of his hallmarks.

  2. My condolences to the Corbesia family and Denise.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was such a good companion for my sister. There was never a dull moment with him. He could tell me everything I need to know about computers. And very crafty. He left way to soon. Will surely be missed.
    Love ya Jim

  6. Jim was a lovely person. He was always so kind and considerate. He was a fun loving uncle to my grandkids. He would talk in a Donald Duck voice so they called him Uncle Donald Duck. Jim would give the shirt off his back if you needed one. He will surely be missed by all that knew him.

  7. Great Man, he was genius with electronics, computers and all sorts of building. Would not turn his back on anyone in need. A real loss to all he came to know. Rest in peace and all God’s grace be with you.
