I have had the honor of working with Jamie the last 4 years. If you made a mistake & he caught it, he told you to let you know, but then he would shoulder bump you & laugh & say take a look next time kid. He never got upset even though you wasted his time to correct what you had did. My favorite memory of Jamie ( & we both laughed after about this) One day my husband came to Marco last year to check the size of my tires to get me snow tires. My husband did this while I was in work. But Jamie was leaving for lunch & saw him ( not knowing who he was) My husband was squatted down checking the size of my tires & Jamie wrote down his plate number as my husband was parked in front of my car. At my lunch my hubby told me an older gentlemen was eying him up as he walked past. I told my husband we had no older gentlemen there. Near the end of my lunch Jamie walked pass us & my hubby said that's So after lunch I told Jamie what he said. Jamie told me I saw someone near your car & I took down his plate number in case something happened to your car. When I told Jamie we laughed then I told him had he called the police it would have been even funnier as my car is in his name. lol But what a great man to look out for me that way. He was very loved & respected at Marco & he will be so very very missed. My hubby & I send our deepest condolences to his family on the loss of such a great man. Tarri

So many words could be spoken of the beautiful soul you were to me and many others.
You made me a better person just by knowing you and you made the world a better place just from him being in it.
You are truly missed already but you will never be forgotten.
Good Night And God Bless My Dear Friend.
Ann Trites (known to you as the " the bloody English woman ")
