    James Lee Quarry is one of the noblest men that ever graced our country. Not only was he a disquished Army Air Force pilot, but also a superb fisherman, a true mountain man, an unbeatable bridge player and a true friend to those who knew him well. He also had a wonderful sense of humor. Jim will be sorely missed, especially by his devoted Huntington Lake pals with whom he shared his smoked trout and fascinating stories. May he rest in peace.

    Jim, I only recently met you. I am grateful for the stories you told. Rest in Peace sir. I intend to play you in a round of golf in a few years.

    Jim was a great friend and neighbor for over forty years to both of us. We first met Jim in l973 when Phyllis worked with him in Pittsburg at EDD. We spent many a great day with Jim and his family water-skiing, snow skiing, and generally enjoying some of the sports he loved. Over the years we saw the great love he had for life, his wife, Joy, and his two girls Jodie & Julie. We will miss our friend, Jim.
