    To all family and friends of Jim:
    We graduated Somerville High together in 1967. I went in the Navy and then we lost touch. I spent almost 50 years trying to get back in touch with him. It wasn’t until last week that I found out he was teaching at the Bellerica High School. Now, to find out that he retired and has passed away is heart breaking. We had good times together. May he rest in peace.

  7. George Tsoukalas says:

    I will miss you, Jim. We taught together for many years and we became friends.

    You were there when my brother died. You were there when my daughters were married.

    Then and after we retired from teaching you were so easy to talk to when I had a problem.

    When my brother Spiro died, you understood how I felt. I remember you picked me up and took me to the Kittery Trading Post, one of my favorite stores.

    …and there was Easter. You would sit with me while I cooked the lamb outside and you still will be there as will Spiro.

    May your memory be eternal.

    You were my chemistry teacher in high school and over recent years we enjoyed brief chats at the hardware store. May you rest in peace, Mr. Whitaker.
