Just became aware of Jim's passing, thus these belated condolences. Jim was 7 years my senior and eventually my supervisor at NSA between 1968 and 1971in the NSA Budget Office, before he became Comptroller. Jim's easy outgoing personality made it easy to share his friendship. We played poker at least once in his Bowie home and shared a happy hour beverage at the old Fort Meade Officers' Club. This was 50 years ago and I still remember his engaging sense of humor. It is no surprise to me that he was selected for advanced, senior education at the Navy War College. Our relationship was truncated by my involuntary transfer back to Vietnam in 1971 but I will remember him always as a kind human being. Rest in peace. Dick Darcy, Lt. Col., USA Ret., Annapolis, Maryland.

I had many dealings with Jim down through the years at the Agency. He was absolutely one of the classiest guys I knew and a true asset to the Intelligence Community!
