I have known jim since the 50"s when their station was on the old rte 8. I grew up with his nephew dick and we use to hang out at the station and help pump gas and clean windshields. Jim was as great person as was the entire Mezzio family. My condolences to his family. A good man who will be missed Gary J. Knapik
