Jim was a cherished family devotee and respected professional by water industry professionals in Virginia and throughout the Southeast. He will be missed by many for his genuine likeability, his easy smile and Jim’s commitment to being the best at all times. The water industry has lost a great man. The Pimblett family will be strengthened by the memory of a father, husband and friend who know that Jim always cared deeply for them.

My condolences to Jim’s wife, children, brothers and sisters. We were cousins who did not have contact after the death of our grandmother. I am sorry that I did not know Jim as an adult as I can see, from the entry of others, that he was a fine family man and a respected peer in his industry.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jim’s beautiful family in this time of sorrow. I had great respect for Jim both as a co-worker and as a family man. He would stop by my desk at work to share stories with me of the latest happenings with Katie and Jay. Always smiling as he spoke of them and Susan. His love for them so apparent. May your memories of him help you through this difficult time.
