Just found out of Jim's passing. Were going to stop next month & visit. Jim was a best friend to both of us and our many Lake Amphibians while we lived in MA. We always enjoyed his annual Christmas calls to give us an update on the local goings on. He was very special to us and will be missed in person and spirit. Our prayers go out to Judy and their children with whom he cared about so much. John & Barbara Sexton, Harvard IL 60033

Jim was large part of my flying life for over 40 years. I had many hours of enjoyable conversation with the copter doctor. My sincere condolences to the Gotovich family.

My deepest condolences to the Gotovich family. Jim was truly a good and generous man. He was a friend to Plainville Scouting Troop 132 BSA for many years. He shared his time, his knowledge and his generous monetary support throughout the years.

With sincere sympathy. Cathy & George Kleczka

My sincere condolences Judy. Jim was a great friend, always there to lend a hand to a friend in need. I'll always remember the countless hours we spent together just talking about airplanes and joking, Jim had a phenomenal sense of humor. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again one day.
