    Sorry for your loss. Jim was part of the much respected Francis Anderson family and a best friend of my older brother, Glen, during his high school years in Tracy. I was a friend of John’s, so got to hang out with the older guys on rare occasions. Jim was a multi-talented guy with a great personality, natural athletic abilities (top ranked high school wrestler, etc.) and also enjoyed extracurricular activities, including cars. He had a black ’39 Chevy Coupe for a short time, chopped the top and painted an old Mopar(?) car red and green with his friends and called it ‘Stop and Go’ (it had no starter). He worked hard and bought a new light blue ’63 Impala SS his junior year in high school, which was especially impressive to a young kid.
