In the early '90s, Jim had great ideas to convert large computer graphics and display systems to the PC (personal computer) environment, and pioneered that environment for use on test and training ranges throughout the DoD. He was a loyal, dedicated engineer and leaves fond memories with me. Rest in peace, Jim, and Fair Winds and Following Seas in heaven.
