  1. Jim was a wonderful family GP. He always made time to squeeze us in if we needed to see him. He was kind, generous, and a wonderful doctor. I saw Jim on the 5th of September and he was in good spirits. I was in agony and he saw me in between home visits. I was devastated to hear of his passing the following day. I was in hospital and my room ate was also a patient if Jim’s. We cried and talked about in into the night. Jim will be greatly missed in Ballarat. He was more than our doctor, he was a friend. Condolences to his family, staff, friends and the many patients who he cared for over his lifetime. Love Ayesha, Grace, and Spencer

  2. Goodbye dad, I’ve written something to say at your service, I think they’re the words you’d have said had you known how to say them. I love you.

  8. Dear Jim,
    I am certain like most of your patients, colleagues, friends and family I could write a book about how my life has been enriched by knowing you. I will remember you as a good man and an extraordinary doctor who treated me always with compassion, professionalism, humour, wisdom, intuition, patience and generosity.
    My heart goes out to everyone who will be feeling you still had so much to give and receive from life.
    Thank you for your support and guidance. You will be remembered.

  9. To Dr Jim;
    I had been wanting to, and wish I had while you were here, thank you for being my and my children’s doctor and a gentle man of great understanding and support in difficult times. It was a gift to know you and such a sad unexpected shock to learn of your passing. May your journey continue well.
